Bougatsa shop in Piraeus

As it has been two years since the last time I stayed in Piraeus, I walked around a bit to see what is new. Not so much change to say the truth, but I did find some now shops.

This is one of them: specialised Bougatsa shop. By Greek sweet shop standard, the premises are large.

As you see in this sign board, Sharai sells Constantinopolitan style bougatsa. It says Bougatsa with cream, cheese, or without anything. Cannot imagine how is bougatsa without filling.

We could see behind the glass window the guys making bougatsa and other pies.

I entered the shop and asked the guy behind the counter a piece of bougatsa with creme. He cut a piece from a large piece, put in an aluminium container and sprinkled powder sugar and cinnamon powder. 2.10 Euros for this.

It was possible to eat it inside the shop, but I took it home.

When arrived home, it was still warm.

To be totally honest, it was not as good as I wanted, but it was nice nonetheless.
