What you'll do

Taste the best Greek streetfood & burn calories

We will have a relaxed 5 km hike in the centre of Athens, starting in its very core, Syntagma and the commercial triangle, which hosts some of the oldest and greatest souvlaki eateries (that operate only during labour hours). We will then have a small break over a light dessert, that has been around since very long ago. After lunch and dessert, we will have a good amount of easy hiking and we will visit the residential area of Koukaki for a light souvlaki dinner and a visit to one of Athens best butchers, where we will see the parts of meat that are being used to produce the Greek "kalamaki" (meat on the stick), along with the well known "gyros" (layers of meat, stuck on top of each other).

I love great food!

I see streetfood as the foundation of all food and tasting courses make me quiet happy, so I thought why not combine both?

It started with me and my close ones, then went on with friends visiting me from abroad!

In early 2018, I decided to share my passion for food with the world and made a dedicated page on instagram, where I present my own recipes as well as places I've visited and enjoyed.

I like to share my food knowledge with more and more people and definitely enjoy learning something new when the opportunity arises!
