We had some fantastic food while we were in Greece. In fact, we enjoyed one restaurant in Santorini so much we went back 3 times! The third time, we got free lemon tart – delicious! If you’re ever in Santorini (which I highly recommend!) try Aktaion in Firostefani.
I’ve always been a fan of Greek salads, and the ones in Greece, obviously, are the best. A thick hunk of marinated feta perched atop kalamata olives, cucumber, fantastic tomatoes, green capsicum and salad onions, generously drizzled with olive oil.
We tried some of the regional specialties as well, including fava bean balls, Santorini salad (fish instead of feta), zucchini pie, moussaka, omelette and deep fried fava, tomato, mint and onion fritters. Julian was even brave enough to try Greek coffee, which apparently has the texture of dirt or sand…
From here, I’m hoping our culinary experience will improve even more – we’re off to Rome today!
