Οnce, I travelled to East Creta in Lasithi, and my friend who lives there offered me to taste a cheese called “Xigalo Kouvaraki“. Since then, whenever I’ve travelled to Crete, my first walk has been to go to shops to buy that amazing cheese! And one day, I saw Xigalo at my parents’ fridge and I got excited when they told me they had bought it at Zouridakis food store at Varvakeios market!
So at one of our visits at Varvakeios, we visited Zouridakis store and I felt very nice when I saw a fridge full of this cheese! But at this delicatessen, you can find many amazing products that come from Crete.
Raki – the most important alcoholic drink of the island; bites with different tastes like oregano & oil, but also you can find “dolmadakia” and any kind of meat made in Crete, like the famous sausage with vinegar!
If you love local food and you want to take back to your country a little bit of Crete inside you luggage, Zouridakis is your place!
