There is so much diversity in Greek cuisine. Each region has something special, but I think that Athens will have some of the best street food, and great options for high end and fancy food. Crete and Cyprus have very unique and distinguished food, with super high quality ingredients. I would also recommend Lemnos. Lemnos is not as popular but they have a grey food and wine selection! I visited last summer and it was amazing!!!Hey everyone, I’ve recently became a foodie as a result of the pandemic, and I love cooking recipes from all over the world. Do you have any regions in Greece that are best known for their food?
That's crazy! I didn't even know there were different types of cucumbers LOL, thanks!A few years ago while in Santorini I had the best Greek salad that used Katsouni cucumbers, that truly made that salad totally different:

What about non street food? I want to explore the less touristy restaurants with traditional cuisine. Any recommendations?Thanasis, Monastiraki, best kebab ever!!!
Αθήνα, απογευματάκι... Διάθεση χαλαρή, ελαφρώς βαριεστημένη και η παραλία ( με την κίνηση στους δρόμους ) μοιάζει μακρινό όνειρο... Ιδανικές συνθήκες για μια βόλτα στο Μαναστηράκι. "Ο Θανάσης" είναι εκεί. Το ίδιο και η δροσιά από τα δέντρα της Πλατείας Δημοπρατηρίου σε συνεργασία με τα εξωτερικά...othanasis.com
I would recommend trying out a "Politko" restaurant! It's a style of food from Greek Constantinople and it's sooo good. It's very similar to traditional Greek food, but with a twist. Pera restaurant in Athens is super authentic and there's very few tourists.What about non street food? I want to explore the less touristy restaurants with traditional cuisine. Any recommendations?
