Krasopoulio tou Kokkora
An affordable hidden gem in the heart of Athens, highly recommended by both locals and tourists.
Tucked in a little pedestrian street in Psyrri, away from the hubbub of the the area’s bars, you will find Krasopoulio tou Kokkora. If you’re looking for ‘real’ Greek cuisine, then the honest, home-cooked dishes of this little tavern are sure to impress you.
All the dishes prepared are based on traditional recipes tracing back to 1850, and are served in more than generous portions leaving you with a feeling of sheer gastronomical fulfilment!
The prices here are extremely convenient, while the 10 EUR menu – including three dishes – is certainly a bargain if you’re on a budget. To wrap it up, have some white wine with your food – the tavern makes its own delightful moschofilero.
Tons of beautiful antiques and coloured lights add to the calm and cosy atmosphere of the place, and the staff really knows how to make you feel at home. Mr Yannis, the owner, is probably one of the friendliest people you’ll meet in Greece and more than willing to give you useful tips and advise on where to go and what to do during your stay. At the end of each meal he treats his guests with a glass of home-made ‘honey red wine’.
