Living at Piraeus, the port of Athens, for my whole life I was mostly going to fish restaurants next to the sea in my neighborhood. So when I discovered that at the streets behind the port there was a Thai restaurant I felt really happy as I love the Asian cuisine.
Walking down Notara street at “Troumpa” area you will find Rouan Thai among other multi ethnic restaurants. Its decoration is really simple – posters with famous Thai people on the wall and an 80s atmosphere all over the place. The food is just amazing! Do not miss tasting their soup, especially the one with coconut milk. The menu is big and you can choose among mostly noodles and rice but they also sell candies.
The neighborhood is charming and it has lot of history. It used to be the “infamous” part of Piraeus as it is behind the port. Lots of Greek songs refer to it and a few movies were filmed on Troumpa’s streets . Nowadays is not infamous anymore, but it still charming!
