Best Foods to Try in Greece
One of the many things you should look forward to when you visit Greece is the food. Here you can taste some of the best Mediterranean dishes and enjoy simple food with great tasting ingredients. Olive oil, cheese, honey, tomatoes, cucumber, and yogurt are the mainstays of Greek cuisine. The locals also use a lot of bread and nuts in their meals. Here are the top Greek foods that you shouldn’t miss.
Gyro is a wrap/sandwich made of pita bread, roasted meat, tomatoes, cucumber, and onions. It is often topped with a yogurt sauce or tzatziki. This is comparable to the Middle Eastern food called shawarma. The roasted meat is juicy and tender and was cooked using a vertical spit. It is then sliced thinly before using it to make a gyro.
Greek salad is one of the simplest yet most amazing foods you’ll ever taste in Greece. The ingredients are Greek staples—tomatoes, onions, cucumber, olives, oregano, feta, and olive oil. Seasoning is added depending on preferences.
