Greek Gastronomy Guide: Hunting for Herbs & Spices in Athens? Try Evripidou Street!
True to uncovering the best that the Greece travel experience has to offer, the Greek Travel Pages (GTP) brings food specialists, the Greek Gastronomy Guide (GGG), on board to join us in revealing the secrets of fine Greek dining, wining, travel and adventure.
Aiming to offer the keen traveler who wants to know where to eat, what to order and how to indulge in Greek cuisine, the Greek Gastronomy Guide sheds light on one of Athens’ spiciest spots: the Evripidou Street market.
Evripidou Street in central Athens off Omonia Square ”has become synonymous with the smells of shops selling food from the colonies, a feature that has remained unchanged throughout the years. Based on the goods sold in each section, Evripidou Street can be divided into four zones. The part of Evripidou Street that lies right above Aiolou Street is just like any other street in the commercial center of Athens; small shops selling various commodities, a few modern cafes and joints frequented by adolescents”.
The Greek Gastronomy Guide offers readers everything from where to buy the best Cretan products to the finest (and rarest) of herbs. In the words of the Greek Gastronomy Guide: ”The most fascinating and fragrant part of Evripidou Market extends between Athinas and Menandrou streets. Lilliputian shops selling spices, flower seeds and plants in small flower pots, ready to color your kitchen or your verandah, will definitely enchant you.”
