The food of Greece (or what we ate)

Travelling with companions who take mealtimes very seriously is a blessing, since I'm such a piggy. The recent visit to Greece yielded meals of cheese, Greek salad and seafood. I don't know if it was just the places we visited (read: touristy) or whether Greek cuisine is really pretty much that, I did find the food a little samey-samey after a while. While really delicious, I was glad to go back home and have a bit more variety.

First lunch in Santorini!

Baked cheese

Hoummus with some very delicious pita

When in Greece, you eat Greek salad. Of course. I must have eaten by body weight in feta while in Greece.


Deep fried tomato balls. Absolutely delicious

Grilled octopus


Breakfast time! We went to this lovely crepe cafe twice for their lovely crepes, waffles and freshly squeezed juice. Heaven.

Cat biscuit! Ah, that's Greek yogurt - officially my favourite breakfast food now.

Prawns were very fresh

Haloumi and tzatziki dip

Cocktails while watching the sunset

Warm bread with olive paste.

Grilled seabass - a fish that was consumed throughout the trip

PS We also consumed a lot of gelato and baklava. Sadly, no pictures as I was too busy guzzling them.
