In this situation, we usually go to Psirri, but I guessed that many shops in Psyrri are closed in August.
We stopped at Dia Tafta, one of the eateries lining the Adrianou Street between Monastiraki and Thissio.
Hubby had a big FIX beer.
It was 4 euros. The smaller jug was 3 euros.
Dia Tafta serves anything Greek, from souvlaki and keftedes to moussaka. Not being so hungry (because I had eaten an entire snicker's ice cream) we chose some mezedes. Prasino salata me ksino mizithra.
Green leaves, strips of dried tomato, dried mizithra cheese, mustardy dressing and pine nuts. 5 euros. Bouyourdi.
We see sometimes dish of this name, but it is different from a shop to another. It is basically feta cheese and veggies cooked in oven. The difference is the vegetables used and the ratio between veggie and feta. This one had nice kick of fresh chili.
It had a nice bite and we were happy.
The total bill was 23.60euros. Not particularly cheap (don't forget we ate only three small dishes), but for Adrianou in Monastiraki, it wasn't expensive either.
It would be nice place to go with friends.
