Having recently eaten our way through Taipei, Mrs. Selfish and I were finally getting tired of Asian food, a rare feat in the Selfish Household. Fortunately, we were now in Greece and I was hungering for some Greek food.
Pitas! Gyros! Lamb! Feta! Baklava! Actually, that’s about all the Greek food I knew going in.
Apparently our offerings of Greek food Stateside are very weak and consists almost entirely of gyros, which is like going to a sushi restaurant and declaring you know Japanese food. We just don’t get the breadth of Greek food in the good ol’ USA.
Fortunately, Athens has a wide variety of Greek food types, so we set out to expand our palettes.
