Πάμε για τσίπουρα; :P


So...these past few days have gone by pretty smoothly! On Sunday I went with my parents to a tsipouradiko and we ate there. If you have no idea what a tsipouradiko is, I will explain it to you.

 Tsipouradiko is like a restaurant where you can order tsipouro or ouzo ( Greek alcohol drink ). What is unique about it is that you don't know what food (or meze in Greek) they are going to bring you. So at first when you order two tsipouro they bring you three different kinds of mezedes. There is also a menu if you want to order something else, but the idea of the hole thing is that you don't know what they are going to bring you. What they usually serve is fish, squid, octopus and different kinds of salads.

I love going out for tsipouro....but I have to admit that it is a bit strong for me which is why I add water most of the times. Also octopus is very good! You have to try it ;)

At least in Volos and Agria there are many good tsipouradika, but I don't know about other places in Greece.

That's it for now! I wish I could write more about Greece and stuff, but I don't want to bore you to death :P

Here is one of my favorite Greek songs by Γιάννης Κότσιρας (Yiannis Kotsiras ) . Enjoy! :)



  1. This tsipouro-thing looks interesting! One of the first things I'll surely try if I ever come to Greece!
