Eating in Athens...yum yum!
These are Gyros that we ate for lunch at a fast food restaurant called Πιτα Παν (Pita Pan)
This is a traditional Greek dish called Μουσακας (Mousaka). It is made with potatoes, eggplant, ground meat, and one more mystery ingredient (ha ha).
This is a meatball dish that was served in earthenware with a tea light underneath to keep it warm. We thought this was quite a unique and interesting presentation. Vaguely resembling a volcano, Gary says, "Stand back! It's gunna blow!" (ha ha)
Here is a table which consists of kabobs, which is pita bread with sausages, tomatoes, and onions. The white sauce that you see on the plate is τζακικι (tzaziki) , make with yogurt, cucumber and garlic; it is sooooo delicious! Also on the table is a traditional Greek salad which consists of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, olives, feta, and drizzled with olive oil.
These are just a few of our favorite Greek dishes and are always eager to try new and interesting Mediterranean food.
