Where to eat economically in Athens

Athens ● Monastiraki ● 23 April 2017
 

In Athens, the variety of restaurants, taverns and all-day cafés and bars allows you to eat economically numerous dishes.  Every meal in Athens is tasteful and at the same time cheaper than in other European cities. With breakfast, lunch and dinner, you can have an amazing culinary experience that reminds you of the delicious Greek cuisine.

For breakfast, you can eat a koulouri, the sesame bread which costs only 0,50€ and is sold on almost every street corner in Athens Center. Many vendors sell together with koulouri small portions of white cheese, which makes the meal nutritious and ideal for a day full of energy. In Monastiraki, and especially in Pandrosou Street, the small pedestrian that leads to the square of Monastiraki, you can find also many small shops that sell fresh juices, prepared just for you with every fruit or vegetable you want for only 2 or 3€.

Lunch is served until late, so you don't have to worry about the time because you can practically eat whenever you want. A popular dish is souvlaki, which costs only 2-3€. The most famous district for souvlaki is Monastiraki, and especially Mitropoleos Street, where are located some of the oldest and best taverns with souvlaki in Athens. Remember, however, that you can find souvlaki, the favourite meal in Greece, in every district and suburb of Athens. In addition to souvlaki, the street food in Athens includes also other cuisines. For Asian street food, the best place is Apollonos Street, a tiny street near Syntagma Square, where you can find Korean, Chinese, Indian, Japanese and Vietnamese food in traditional restaurants.

If you want to taste the Greek cuisine, you can do that in a tavern. The meal consists of many mezedes and small plates with many different dishes, and it costs per person maximum 15-20€. The best taverns with seafood are located in Piraeus, in the district of Peiraiki as well as in Adrianou Street in Athens Center, the pedestrian that connects Monastiraki with Thiseio. Kydathinaion Street in Plaka has also many traditional restaurants for seafood as well as meat.

Late at night, after your bar-hopping in Athens, when you have drunk and want something to eat, vromiko is a perfect solution. It consists of hot dogs and sandwiches, is served from food trucks until the early hours and costs maximum 5€. The best places to eat vromiko are Mavili Square, in a close distance to Kolonaki, and Michalakopoulou Street, behind Hilton, where famous food trucks are located.
