Greek food guide

When one thinks of a Greek meal, a variety of pictures may come to mind. A juicy souvlaki, a warm plate of moussakas, or a lamb being roasted on a spit. Although these are very much part of the modern Greek diet, it by no means makes up the majority. In fact, the average daily diet of a Greek will almost always consist of some sort of vegetarian food throughout the day. It can be argued that some of Greece’s most traditional -and very tasty- dishes are meat-free, making Greece a great place for vegetarians!

Our Athens for Foodies tour is a real head-first dive into Greek gastronomy that visitors often miss during their trips to Greece. There is so much more to the Greek cuisine then moussaka and souvlaki; in-fact, during the tour, you will learn that moussaka is one of Greece’s most recent food inventions! That being said, this tour will not only satisfy your palate and your belly, but you will also leave intellectually satisfied as this is a 4-hour tour of Greek gastronomic history that is heavily influenced by the historical and cultural progression of the country.

Greece may be best known for its Caribbean-like beaches, ancient history, and avid nightlife, which are all true, but make up only some pieces of the beautiful Greek puzzle. An often underrated side of Greece, which some may not be as familiar with, is its cuisine and the high-quality of food that the country has to offer... Psych! Everyone knows Greece's food is the cat's meow, and here we'll explain why!

The Greeks may be known more for their great food and folk dancing abilities, and less for their range of alcoholic beverages, but you can rest assured that, as a nation, they know how to drink! As one of the most ancient civilizations, Greece has a rich history in wine production and wine drinking, and although one could write an essay on the plethora of delicious Greek wines, this article will go into detail about some other Greek spirits that the average traveler would not likely know or hear about. Read below the unique heritage and origins of the top Greek spirits, and make a toast to your upcoming vacation in Greece!
