Without being culturally chauvinistic Greeks know food. Our first night we ate in a tucked away restaurant near Aristotelis Square close to the harbor called Ouzari Aristoteli 8. Five of us shared μεζεδάκια (appetizers) similar to Spanish Tapas tradition: saganaki (kefalotiri) cheese, beet greens, broiled octopus, λουκάνικα (sausages), lightly fried koλοκυθιά (squash-- similar to Japanese battered vegetables), some light white wine and village bread. We ate for €45 (=$51) includes tip. That was the total for five!
All over Greece are small, New York narrow walk-in markets with meats, fish, cheese and juices and canned goods. I'll try and post food photos from each region we visit. Kαλή όρεξη!

Greeks are hospitable by nature. We enter a tourist shop and out come the almonds, or the sesame snacks with honey, or a bowl of olives and bread. In Elassona at the Monastery of the Panageia of Olympiotissa the nuns served greek coffee and koulouria. They fretted that the coffee would cool before we all assembled in a covered porch area with stone floors and natural light.
