Just Pita: Trying Kontosouvli for the First Time
Quick Eats

I was hungry and the choices were not many; at walking distance, a couple of hundred meters from the hotel,  Just Pita welcomes late-night visitors. With an aim to try as many local dishes as possible, I started with the waiter’s recommendation: something called “Kontosouvli skewer”. One kilogram -a giant Souvlaki- of pork meat served with fries, bread, tomatoes, and four sauces. A subtle crunch on the outside; juicy and tender on the inside, the pork is not chewy and not hard textured. Can feed up to four persons, the skewer is huge!


I was skeptical at first until I had the first bite. Juicy meat, tasty and beautifully marinated. Street food, on the main road leading to Monastiraki Square, traditional and tasty.
