Start the day like true locals sipping on a traditional Greek coffee at a legendary spot that has been serving up coffee since 1923, accompanied by mouthwatering Loukoumades. After your coffee fix, make your way to the lively central market of Athens. Steeped in history, this market has withstood the test of time, surviving wars, bombardments, earthquakes, and passionate locals haggling for the best deals. Engage with enthusiastic shop owners and indulge in an assortment of olives, including the renowned Kalamata olives.
Next, we'll pop into two extraordinary food stores nestled on the outskirts of the market to feast on irresistibly delicious pistachios, different variations of premium Greek Feta cheese, and let's not forget the heavenly combination of Greek yogurt topped with a drizzle of luscious Greek honey—a true local specialty that you won't want to miss!
Then make your way to an exceptional restaurant that specializes in Karamalnides cuisine as you learn the story of Greeks who were forcibly displaced from their homelands. Prepare your taste buds as we sample cold cuts and traditional meze dishes infused with Eastern spices and flavors.
After, stroll through the bohemian Psirri neighborhood to one of the city's most iconic bakeries. This place that attracts Athenians from all walks of life--presidents, partygoers, and even celebrities flock here at every hour of the day to grab one of their famous koulouris.
No food tour of Athens would be complete without sinking your teeth into the iconic souvlaki. Picture a Greek pita bread filled to the brim with succulent pork, chicken, lamb, tzatziki, onion, and potatoes. You'll try it at a trendy street food joint run by a group of passionate chefs and friends who prepare meat typically found only in the Greek countryside.
Your next stop is in the Plaka neighborhood at the foot of the Acropolis, in a bar and distillery owned by a family crafting liqueurs since 1909. Taste the Brettos family's star liqueur while delving into the rich history of the place, all while surrounded by vibrant, old barrels.
Next, prepare to satiate your cravings with some truly delectable home-cooked local dishes. Sit down in a cozy, family-run restaurant and savor their daily specials, such as the irresistible stuffed bell peppers or the comforting layers of moussaka. Finally, you'll head to a charming bakery owned for a tantalizing treat as you indulge in their unique sweet pie, the Galatopita.
