The Best Modern Greek restaurants in London

top 5 Modern Greek restaurants in London

Here I am again, writing from London. Spending a little longer than usual, it allowed me to explore the great food scene. London has amazing tasty nooks and corners where you can indulge yourselves in International cuisine. Greek restaurants in London rarely made it in the top of the list go to places. Luckily, this is no longer the case. Greek cuisine is on the rise, many Greek delicatessen offer products from small Greek producers and what’s more exciting original Greek dinners. The concept is all about sharing, plates will come out mezze style so that you can enjoy the delectable dishes in good company. So, here I am sharing with you my experiences of Greek restaurants in London. I visited the Modern Greek restaurants that have opened in the last five years or so. Judging from my experience, you should definitely put them on the list. Continue reading

London walks

Going from one island to the next, from Mykonos to London was something I longed for a little while. No matter how wonderful the crystal clear waters of Mykonos, London’s grey skies and unending green horizons have a special place in my heart. I know, it’s absurd but I cannot resist the charm of the light grey clouds that hung lazily overhead, even if this comes with a spot of drizzle. And there is nothing better than a walk to take it all in. So this post is not about food, but walks in London and beyond.

Athens city break

One wonderful day in Athens

The Parthenon & Lycabettus hill, walking in Athens

Most of the people who visit Greece, usually fly to Athens. Be it at the height of summer, when Athens is swarming with visitors making their way to the islands or during winter, when mild weather and winter sun will help you recharge your batteries. However, it’s no secret that the best time to enjoy a crowd-free capital is in the autumn and spring. No matter which time of the year you choose to visit, the fact is you will be spending at least one day in Athens. For me, Athens is certainly worth visiting longer than just for a quick weekend break but it is so often the case that busy people have little time on their hands. So, how do you spend your day when you only have 24 hours in Athens? Here are a few suggestions to get you started: Continue reading

I have many friends who visit Greece for holidays. More often than not this would be an escape on the islands, be it glamorous Mykonos, romantic Santorini or a chilled road-trip to the Peloponnese. Of course Athens will be kept for the prized city break of winter sun. If you are a first timer you are certainly going to keep yourself busy in the center, hopping from museum to museum and strolling in the center of Plaka. But what do Athenians do on their weekend?

Slowly, very, very slowly we are dragging from summer into September. I took it easy this summer and enjoyed a few beaches around Athens in August whilst everyone was away on the islands. Along with all the wonderful summer fruit, from apricots to peaches and figs, I have been enjoying veggies a lot. I went crazy on courgettes recently. There is my favourite courgette bruschettas recipe from chef Aria Pouliou below, I couldn’t stop eating it. I still cannot to be honest. Continue reading
