Spend an afternoon in Athens eating like the locals. The streets are home to the best in Athens, with food vendors and small cafes serving quality food as well. While the menu might be simple, the flavors are most certainly not, achieving great success getting visitors to come even at 2 a.m. Gyros and wine abound in the scenic Plaka neighborhood for lunch, for example. Even though some vendors have minimal seating, the recipes are to die for and definitely worth the experience!
Even vendors serve baked lamb or chicken for you to try. The best places are really on the streets! There are also plenty of vegetarian options. Have a greek salad with some of the freshest tomatoes you will taste. During the day, try pasta or moussaka. After hours, move on to bars or try delicious Greek wines from an extensive wine list. Bring a group of friends for cocktails on a Wednesday to skip the line. On Sundays, eat out with children or taste home cooked meals and salads.
