Extravaganza – Food and cocktails at its best

Hidden in an arcade just above the center, the first time I visited it took me 10 minutes more than it should have to find it, but 10 seconds into the meal I was able to say it’s totally worth the trouble.

Extravaganza offers delicious, Mediterranean-with-a-twist food. They change up their menu depending on the season, but there are a few standards you have to try, like the mushroom risotto, kavourmopaty and the fries with truffle oil. I first experienced truffle oil here and now I can safely say I’ve joined the truffle oil cult. I suggest you opt for ordering the “Greek way”, take dishes for the middle of the table and not individual portions, so you can taste more of the amazingness that is Extravaganza. Also save some space for the dessert offered at the end, a perfect piece of portokalopita (orange pie) with ice cream.

The modern design cannot go unnoticed, it really does fit with the style of the dishes. There are also tables outside and during the summer the arcade fills with people and cocktails. I have to admit, I come for the food and stay for the cocktails. Seriously, try the ginger mint and go to cocktail heaven. You should notice that it’s one of the few places in Thessaloniki where smoking isn’t permitted inside.
