Looking for a Greek food guide? I lived in Greece for six summers and, unfortunately for my wallet, developed an unhealthy obsession with going out for dinner when I was there. For 2 years, I worked at a traditional restaurant on the beach where I was given a free meal every night after my shift. It’s safe to say I worked my way through the entire menu and became a huge ambassador for Greek food.
The freshness of the veg, the simplicity of the seafood and the way that the meat is marinated just makes my mouth happy. But sometimes the menus can be confusing and a little overwhelming when all the dishes are new to you. Here is my guide so some of the most common dishes in Greece and why you absolutely have to try them.
