This is where I head to when I need to grab a quick morning snack before I go to work or when I feel down a bit and I want to find comfort & joy in a delicious (although not considered precious) hot dog. Or when I’m just a little sick & tired of gourmet, cosmo or hipster places and «down-to-earth» is what I am looking for.
Do you ever feel like it? Well, I often do… and these are my -not so secret- choices of cool street food, or to be more accurate, food that you can take out to the city streets.
The Food Truck (at Mavili sq.) : Word-of-mouth hot dog (called by locals «vromiko» which means dirty…). The letter A to the alphabet of athenian street food.
Κώστας (Kostas): The best «greek souvlaki» you can have (with a secret-recipe spicy tomato sauce instead of tzatziki).
Streetwok : Best noodles-to-go in Athens! Try them!
Pie Works : Traditional american recipes as good as they get!
Schweinchen Dick : They know sausage as well as Germans do.
Mirch : A wrap combining Indian Tika Masala with greek souvlaki… #nomnom
Lycabettus : A simple bakery at Dinokratous str., Kolonaki, that’s something of a delicatessen, although it doesn’t itself advertise as such. Trust me with the prosciutto sandwiches, the chocolate muffins, the muesli bars and the cranberry cake.
