Random Greek Food Photos

Just a few pictures of some delicious and interesting Greek dishes.

Quick dinner from the souvlaki stand in the square.
Chicken sticks, bifteki, potatoes, toasted bread, and wine.

Fish soup from Psaraki, potatoes, and horta (local greens with oil and lemon).

Lunch at Galini:  Two grilled squids, grilled octopus, a mostly eaten Greek salad, and
saganaki (pan-fried kefalotyri cheese).

Lemon on everything.

Hmmm...must be where calamari comes from.

Sauteed spinach with grilled squid.  Never seen that before.
That fits into the "interesting" category.

We were trying to light the barbecue at Nectar's and it started raining.
So...out came the hair dryer.

Nectarios "Mary Poppins" Papadapolous and his grill.

Dakos:  Crusty country bread topped with cherry tomatoes, feta, oregano, and olive oil.
A favorite Cretan meze - thank you Nectar.

Dinner party at Nectar's.

Pork steaks, pastitio, horta, vegetable rice, salad, wine, etc...

Happy and full.

Laura's favorite breakfast at the Corner Creperie.
A hot waffle with cookies & cream ice cream, whipped cream, nutella,
sliced bananas, and crushed butter cookies.  And she's lost weight here?

Lunch at home with Mandi!
Fasolakia (green beans in tomato sauce and olive oil), salami and edam sandwich, chips,
and the ever-present Coke Zero.

Lay's makes lots of interesting flavors of potato chips overseas.
Our favorite is "Oven-roasted Chicken with Lemon and Thyme."

Ahhhhh...macaroni & cheese in a can!
I guess Heinz's international department gets some crazy ideas too.

Homemade hummus and homemade pita chips.  Once again...AP-A-RIL!!!

Always a sucker for street food - Phil and his grilled corn, complete with Greek flag.  

Dinner ar Naoussa with the gang.
Soutzoukakia (Greek meatballs in tomato sauce), steaks, etc...

Snacks at Niki...local fava, salad, olives, eggplant, saganaki, etc...

Tiropita, or cheese pie (layers of buttered filo dough filled with a cheese and egg mixture).
A delicious Greek staple, now available in your local frozen food aisle.

Picture taken to show size of said Tiropita.


  1. Oh, all that food brings back many fond memories. I definitely want to go to a Greek restaurant when Jim and I are in DC over Christmas.

  2. P.S. I wouldn't mind having April as my personal chef for a month...
