Greek Islands: Chios Restaurants, Chios, Greece (B)

There are two kinds of Greek restaurants. Well there are more but for the sake of this page lets say there are just two. Those that are for Greeks and those that are for non-Greek tourists. Chios, being a Greek island, the type that does not get many foreign tourists but lots of Greek ones, has a large number of very good restaurants. In fact I did not find a bad one. These are the restaurants we did manage to eat at in the short time we were on the island. Chios also being a relatively self-sufficient agricultural island has a good amount of fresh fruits and vegetables not to mention fresh fish and beef, pork, lamb, goat and local sausages. Those who have been to Lesvos will find the menus similar though not exactly. But if you are used to the high standard of cooking and eating on Lesvos, you should not be too disappointed with the cuisine on Chios. If you like keftedes (meat-balls), tomato-keftedes, tiropitakis (cheese pies), souzoukakia (spicy tomato covered meatballs from Smyrna in Asia Minor), saganaki (fried cheese), fresh fish, shrimp, squid and especially if you like them fried then you will be pretty happy on Chios. If you are looking for the ouzo-mezedes culture you will also find it in Chios (Check out the cafeneon in Pirgi-photo).
