Arxigos Food

Even though souvlaki and gyros is a popular choice in Athens for many reasons, it can actually be hard to find that perfect souvlaki. However, Arxigos has ticked all the boxes and for the right reasons.

The chicken thigh souvlaki in particular is soft and succulent, the mustard sauce is light and creamy, the golden chips are covered in paprika seasoning and the pitta bread is not greasy at all. The ingredients are high quality, plus it’s delicious and filling to have. The pork gyros is also highly recommended and is served with their homemade tzatziki sauce. Arxigos Food is available to order on the app e food for home delivery, or you can check out their fabulous restaurant. The chicken thigh souvlaki only costs 2.50 euros.

Even though spanakopita (spinach pie) is a common savoury pie to eat in Greece, it can sometimes be hard to find the right one that just hits the spot. However, at Pronto bread dessert coffee, they serve yummy spanakopita as a generous portion. This heavenly slice only costs 1.90 euros.

The golden filo pastry is crunchy and flaky, the spinach is fresh and warm, the feta cheese isn’t too salty and overall this certain pie is not greasy at all. It is the perfect breakfast to have delivered right to your doorstep through e Food, or you can visit the bakery yourself.

The Greek dessert loukoumades is usually sweet and the classic way is served with just honey, cinnamon and sometimes chopped walnuts too. However, at the dessert parlor Lukumades, they also have modern and savoury versions with Greek ingredients.

I highly recommend for you to try the Cretan savoury loukoumades, since the fried doughnut balls are filled with Mizithra cheese and then covered in a glaze of honey and topped with sesame seeds. They are scrumptious, with a slight tangy and sour taste on the inside and crunchy on the outside. These doughnut balls can be eaten for anytime of the day. You can order for home delivery from the app Wolt, or you can visit the dessert parlor yourself. This little box includes 8 balls and only costs 4.60 euros.
