A family business that has been one of the city’s gastronomic landmarks for over 30 years, offering the best fish and chips in town. If you go an a walk around the beautiful port area and turn towards Ladadika, you will see plenty of fish and chips restaurants. But watch out, because only “Ta Bakaliarakia sto Limani” (the little cods by the harbour) offer the original fish and chips secret recipe that has been loved by locals over the decades.
When visiting Thessaloniki, a walk in the upper part of the city is a must. Cobblestone alleys, colourful houses, majestic city walls and forts, breathtaking view and calmness that makes you feel so far from the city centre and yet so close. But besides that, Ano Poli holds a great gastronomic secret that you should definitely discover: “To Yenti”.
A great restaurant, which you will find right next to the historic Eptapyrgion (aka Yedi Koule), one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.
At just walking distance from Aristotelous Square and just 50m from the picturesque flower market (Louloudadika), is the shop where you can buy all the essential souvenirs from your holidays in Thessaloniki! Greek Art Angelos was founded in 1985 and has ever since been the main provider of memorabilia and souvenirs to the thousands of tourists visiting the city each year.
According to Wikipedia “a gyro (/ˈjɪəroʊ/ YEER-oh,/ˈʒɪəroʊ/ ZHEER-oh;) or gyros (Greek: γύρος, [ˈʝiros], lit. ‘turn’) is a Greek dish of meat roasted on a vertical spit. It is commonly served in a sandwich with tomato, onion, tzatziki sauce”. So if you are looking for the best gyros in town, you will find it in one of the city’s busiest parts. Right across the iconic Arch of Galerius (Camara) you will instantly recognise Christos by the four huge vertical spits of
roasting pork and chicken gyros, rotating behind its fron window.
If you want to dine like a local, take a short break from sight-seeing and stop by Bombidia at Modiano Market, right off of Aristotelous square. And if you’re wondering what the meaning behind this word is and why this small restaurant is always packed, just keep in mind that “bombidia” refers to tiny “meat bombs” that burst with flavour!
There are many different ways to see and explore Thessaloniki. And one of them leads straight to the sea!
