Eating Out in Athens

Edit This
Athens is a melting pot of traditional cuisine, accompanied by traditional music, and the urge to feed the tourist's stomach. Because Greek cuisine is popular, but at the same time one of many, one can find restaurants to everyone's taste. So if you decide not to eat a traditional dish (such as Souvlaki, Keftedes or Kalamaraki) at a Taverna, make sure you go to an authentic Ouzeria Greek cafe after your dinner, not in the least to drink away your garlic taste.

One tiny detail that might be of interest, Greeks generally do not eat breakfast. Therefore, it is up to you to be inventive. Go to a shop and buy some bread or take my advice and start eating the delicious Greek snacks (Kebabs and Koulouria for example) as early as possible.
