Koutoukaki at Koukaki, the hyped neighbourhood of Athens, is the place to eat if you are looking for homemade cooking!
When I entered this “kafeneio” for the first time (let’s say this is what we call a traditional Greek restaurant) and I heard Dimitris Mitropanos, I knew it would be my place!
Moving to the hyped neighbourhood of Koukaki almost a year ago I realised that my new area is full of gastronomy and places to enjoy food — but we had to search for the best one! And we did, and found it: it’s Koutoukaki!
Κoutoukaki is the ultimate place to enjoy “mamadistiko fagito” — this is how we call the food that Greek mothers cook for their families.
It’s not fancy or modern at all — it’s just typical Greek gastronomy that comes from the past. French fries, omelette, meat balls, many different kinds of fish, and if you are a vegetarian please ask for their vegetarian platter (that you see on the photo!) . You are going to love all its ingredients as they are always fresh and really well made.
Mrs Giota and Mrs Toula, the ladies that own the place are there waiting to cook and take care for you!
