As soon as you reach the centre of Athens you will be seduced by the aromatic symphony of herbs and spices, the cinnamon from the cookies in bakeries, the curry from the Indian street food, the cumin and chili from the spice racks and the oregano from the Greek salad at some restaurant you just passed.
It’s then when you realize that food always tastes better at its source just like the cheese you taste before buying at the groceries. It’s simply delicious! But when the time comes to serve it for dinner it never tastes the same.
Some exquisite delis where inspired by this belief and decided to create a tasteful corner within the deli so that customers could enjoy their delicacies right then and there.
