Grab a souvlaki on the go

A genuine Greek delicacy

Souvlaki is another famous Greek dish. At first glance, it seems rather straightforward: chunks of spiced meat served in pita (traditional Greek bread). Yet this dish has loads of hidden subtleties that make it extremely popular and delicious! You'll find it on the menu in bars and restaurants all over the city. In the Plaka district, next to the Acropolis, waiters advertising this dish are found by the dozen. For the chance to choose your own fillings, its wide availability as a takeaway option or simply for the delightful combination of succulent roasted meat with traditional Greek tzatziki, we definitely recommend trying this dish when visiting Athens.
