Eating in Kypseli

Greece, Athens Guide (B): Eating in Kypseli

As I mentioned on the Fokionos Negri page, the first restaurant you visit should be O Bakalogatos because not only is it the best restaurant in the neighborhood, it may be the best in all of Athens as some of the most well known chefs who eat there would agree. They have a large menu, in Greek and in English, and the staff does speak English. Order the mussels, either from Limnos, or Mytilini which come in a delicious broth suitable for dunking their whole wheat bread and paximadia. Save some for their white taramasalata which will make you forget the pink stuff. Order the makaronades with cheese and crispy onions, order the pasta with shrimp, order the sausage, order the sikotaria (liver and stuff in wine sauce), order the best dolmadakia (stuffed grape leaves) you have ever eaten, the grilled vegetables are amazing, the Kykladiki salad, or any of the meat dishes. I could go on but start with these and then ask the waiter or owner to suggest something. Oh, and save room for desert, especially the chocolate soufle with home made ice-cream. ......
