Plenty of authentic Greek food! Here are some of my favorite Greek dishes.
Spanakopita: A filo pastry pie filled with spinach and feta cheese.
Gyros: Lamb or chicken with vegetables and tzatziki sauce in a pita roll.
Moussaka: It's an eggplant casserole.
Pastitsio: It's a baked pasta dish (my favorite!)
Save room for dessert! Here are some awesome Greek desserts.
Diples: A fried dough with honey and crushed walnuts
Baklava: Filo dough with honey and nuts (also look for a baklava sundae!)
Kourabiedes: A Greek Christmas cookie. A biscuit with butter, almonds and dusted in powered sugar.
Loukoumades: A Greek doughnut. Fried dough drenched in honey and sprinkled in cinnamon.
There is more than just the food! There is Greek music and dancing. Greek dancing lessons, a tavern, bazaar,church tours and more!
