Looking for a Greek food guide? I lived in Greece for six summers, and unfortunately for my wallet, I developed a bad habit of going out to dinner while 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 that I worked through the entire menu and became a great ambassador for Greek food.
The freshness of the ingredients, the tenderness of the fish and the way the meat is marinated make my mouth happy. But sometimes the menus can be confusing and a bit overwhelming if all the dishes are new to you. Here is my guide to some of the most common dishes in Greece and why you should try them.
