Eating out in Thessaloniki
I thought I’d take a break from the serious teaching stuff. The exams have almost finished and the summer is here. So, at least for the next few posts, I have decided to write about different parts of Thessaloniki.
This is Ouzo Melethron, which is a nice taverna located off Venizelou St. The whole alley way has been converted into a open - air eatery, which gets pretty busy after 2pm and again at night, after 9pm.
As well as the classic greek dishes it does a lot of unusual ones with very odd (but funny) sounding names. The food is good and the prices are reasonable as well. You can eat well for about 15 euros per person.
Also It’s a great place to sit, watch the world and soak up the atmosphere.Just one thing, if you do eat there make sure you take somebody who reads Greek as the (very long) menu is just in Greek.
