Out in Athens – Ep Avli – Επ’ αυλή

Aug 8th, 2010 | By | Category: Out in Athens, Recipes

The Ep Avli tavern is one of the best in the center of town, the area of Pangrati, near Syntagma.  The menu is small but each week they serve seasonal specials. One of my favorites is the butter fried trout, but also the salads are great. You should leave some space for the Kataifi desert. [...]

The favourite pass time of the Greeks is to sit. Preferably in a “Kafeneion” or a “Taverna”. This is depending on the time of the day. Sundays at noon (14.00 to 17.00) Greeks love to sit in the taverna with the family and friends and eat. Different Mezze are eaten and wine or beer is [...]
