The last few years one of the most fascinating neighborhoods of Athens has been the area around Syntagma square dotted with lots of bars and cafes. Especially Nikis Street turned into an ethnic street with lot of restaurants with specialities around the world. Among all of those I choose Makalo as my dearest one !
Do not miss an opportunity to visit Makalo. Their food is amazing. You can choose among fresh salads and daily plates. I really like the salad with green apple and couscous. You can also try “trachanas”, a typical traditional Greek food that is cooked in a modern way and you also can ask for “pumpkin pie” and a very special and tasteful salad with beans and herring! And at the end you can choose from their candies – my favorite one is the cheesecake.
Makalo is also famous for its gorgeous lemonades. It’s an easy going place ideally for your lunch or even your night drinks!
