Doksa Thessaloniki – The traditional one

restaurants
Restaurants

"Doksa" Thessaloniki is a traditional Greek restaurant that makes me feel like I'm eating at my grandparents, with food so delicious it hits the right spot

Doksa has taken its name from a football team from the city of Drama. It is a tavern with Greek traditional foods and tastes. When you go to eat at Doksa, it is like you are going to eat at your (Greek) grandparents'. You feel you are at home, eating delicious food, made by your Grandmother. 

The spot seems like it should be back in the 80's or 90's. Simple and nice, with not many tables, and a stove where they warm the bread. In addition, I choose to eat at Doksa with friends, drinking wine and eating the delicious fried chicken bites. I have heard that another delicious dish is the liver, but I am not a fan of this kind of meat. 

I am keen on this kind of spot, where you can hang out with your friends, and talk. 

Extra Tip: There is a cat in Doksa and it belongs to the owners. I have never seen such a big and fat cat. I think we could say that it's the official mascot of this spot.

Nea Diagonios – A paradise of meat

In the eastern part of Thessaloniki, you can find the “paradise of meat”, the restaurant “Nea Diagonios” (literally, “New Diagonal”). Although the area is not touristy, it is worth visiting (don’t worry, there is a menu in English too).
