When you have a hangover (or want one, it is a bar afterall) or when you are really tired, suffering from jet-lag, or when you can’t be bothered to eat anything healthy, it is always good (in my opinion) to indulge yourself to unhealthy junk food. At Wogie’s they have a nice menu that would… READ MORE

After some serious inner struggle, I have finally decided that Zahos Grill is my favorite souvlaki shop in Athens. Not only is the souvlaki amazing there, but I also love the location, the people and what it represents for me! Zahos Grill is located in a friendly neighborhood in the south suburbs of Athens, and… READ MORE

When I am in the south suburbs of Athens I always go to a certain souvlaki place, but recently I ventured out from my norm and went to Piazza Kalamaki. The souvlaki at Piazza Kalamaki is actually quite good and the chicken skewer is very juicy! I know chicken skewer is not a special dish… READ MORE

Ohhhh yes! My favorite Souvlaki thus far! Panerithraikos is located in the north suburbs of Athens. I just LOVE this place! They only make three things here: Tomato and Onion Salad, Pork Souvlaki and Fried Potatoes. The menu is very simple and they have been cooking the same menu for so many years that they have… READ MORE

Since 1961 Blue Pine has been one of the oldest and chic French restaurants in Kifissia, the type of restaurant you go with your parents and their friends to celebrate a special occasion. As I mentioned before I love old-fashioned places and this is one of those ancient looking restaurants with the waiters averaging about… READ MORE

Hello, I’m the Little Dik-dik! I was born with a souvlaki in my mouth, possibly the last dinner my mother had before giving birth to me, and that pretty much explains my love for souvlaki and why I am obsessed with finding the best souvlaki in Athens (and hopefully around the world in the future)!… READ MORE

I might be a little dik-dik but sometimes my friends call me grandpa dik-dik because I like old fashioned things and places, like places I used to go with my parents when I was a kid. When the weather is nice, we like to go to Delfinia Tavern in the south suburbs of Athens where… READ MORE

Pbox is one of my favorite restaurants in Athens! Not because it’s 10 steps from my house, (no… I’m not a lazy dik-dik) it’s because it has excellent food! It’s small and cozy and did I mention the food!? It is owned by Celebrity Chef Christoforos Peskias who is a judge on “Top Chef Greece” and… READ MORE

I am the Little Dik-dik who loves to Dim Sum (or Yam Cha, how they call it in Hong Kong). Well, Dim Sum and Yam Cha are the same thing, they both mean Cantonese style breakfast or brunch (little dishes served in mini bamboo steamers). Apparently in Hong Kong, some restaurants serve Dim Sum all… READ MORE
