Mouries in Kolonos – Authentic Athenian

It does not matter what you order when you visit Mouries because everything is made with the same care (however, my favorite dish here is the meatballs).

Zaharias Records – A music lovers' paradise

My favorite morning walk in the Monastiraki Flea Market always ends with a visit to Zaharias Records. Here I can browse a huge and ever-changing collection of second-hand vinyl records and CDs and always discover something to buy.

Ktistakis – Loukoumades from heaven

Ktistakis is hidden in the streets around Omonoia Square but deserves every moment you will spend searching for it. It makes only one thing: delicious little loukoumades.

Talking Breads – Talking about street food

My favourite burger is the Bacon Mushroom Melt, and my favourite sandwich is the Tika, which is slightly spicy and causes a chain of flavour explosions!

Koukouvaya – The destination for dessert

A nice dessert is a perfect conclusion to a satisfying meal or an accompaniment to a delicious coffee. But in Koukouvaya, a cafe in the center of Athens, enjoying an excellent dessert becomes an end goal in itself.

About me

Antonis Tsapepas (1974)

About me

I was born in Athens, a few metres from the Ancient Cemetery of Kerameikos, as were my father and my grandfather. Therefore, I consider myself a native of this unique city. Perhaps these images of the ancient monuments from my childhood made me want to become an archaeologist. I was able to do this by earning a degree in archaeology from the University of Athens, even though I never worked in the field.

So over time, archaeology and my love for Athens turned into a constant quest to uncover its secrets, neighbourhoods, buildings, streets, aromas, tastes, and hidden treasures. At the same time, I made many trips throughout Greece and Europe, and despite the unforgettable places I saw, none of them made me forget Athens.

In 2019, I decided to make my own site, named By Food and Travel (byfoodandtravel.com) in order to share my travel experiences but also to introduce as many people as I could to my city through my own eyes.

Why I love Athens?

The city of Athens has a distinctive personality. It has an important history and significant global landmarks. It can both make you love it and let you down. It is a dynamic, throbbing live organism that is always evolving. Within a few hundred metres, it can be contemporary, conventional, picturesque, or alternative. Despite the fact that I have lived here my entire life, this city never ceases to surprise me. There are still parts of it that I have yet to explore and gastronomic delights to discover.
