If you are wandering around Athens and you are looking for street food there is place you should not miss!
At the very center of Athens, in the hyped neighborhood around Aiolou Street, you can have the most tasteful lechmatzoun of the city! Mrs Feyrouz, who comes from the Antioch area, cooks the lechmatzoun and her sons, Andreas and Savvas, serve them. But most of all they create a gastronomic tour for you! They have a story to tell you about every delicious dish their mother makes and share this story with you.
So, you first choose a lechmatzoun from the 3 different types – one with vegetables, one with minced meat and one with spices and then you can choose between hummus, tabouleh or spicy eggplant for your lechmatzoun. You can also try one of their pies, ftoir and zatar. And after this great gastronomic experience you can end your visit at Feyrouz with a “ryzogalo” candie or their new gastronomy proposal: wheat mixed with pomegranate and rose water!
Since the very first time I visited Feyrouz I have visited them again and again. Not only because of how gastronomically happy they make me but also because you can feel that this family runs their small business with love for food and also love for the tradition that is related to their food!
A few days ago at the FNL awards, Feyrouz was voted as the best place for “street food” in Athens and we are really proud of them!
