HOLY. COW. That’s really the only way to describe this experience. We spent our afternoon with Julia, a local Athenian and expert on the area. From the moment we began the food tour, we knew that we were in excellent hands. We began our Athens food tour by meeting at Crème Royale where we met the rest of our group for a small Greek breakfast pastry called a Bougatsa. This was definitely the sweetest part of our journey and an excellent way to kick the food tour off. After getting a taste of the sweet, we made our way to Evripidou Street for a smell of the various spices & herbs that make Greek food so special. We spent some time observing locals going about their regular routine of picking the best ingredients the markets had to offer before making our way to the olive stand.
The olives were hands down the most eventful part of the tour. There we sampled more olives than we ever dreamed we would. From sweet to bitter, wrinkled to round, and every color under the sun, we got to taste every regional Greek flavor you could think of. This was definitely near the top of the highlights during the tour.
After eating our weight in olives, we made our way to a local shop where Julia made us her homemade Tzatziki Sauce. We watched in awe as she made it in front of us before serving it on Paximadi Bread and slices of cucumber. This was paired with some breakfast wine and meats/cheeses. This was unquestionably our favorite part of the entire experience. Her homemade Tzatziki Sauce is one of a kind and we felt so blessed to be able to eat it.
After leaving we made our way to a few more stops, including a street food stand where the locals like to go. We learned how to make “The Perfect Bite” before walking into Central Market where we sampled some fish soup and wandered about the fish market. After weaving our way through the various stands of fish, we made it to our final stop where anchovies, calamari, zucchini bread, and cooked legumes awaited us. We washed it down with some Raki and red wine before saying our good-byes to our lovely guide and group.
