Athens is a city that I’ve wanted to visit ever since learning so much about it during one of my Western Civilizations classes in High School. Finally, I had a chance to visit, not only for the amazing history, but mainly for the amazing Greek food!

In this video, I’m taking you on a one day, all out Greek food tour of Athens along with Tassos. We ate a combination of classic Greek street food snacks, and a few restaurants, including for dinner some of the best lamb chops I’ve ever had.

Here are all the restaurants and places included in this Greek food tour of Athens:

Dexameni Cafe – Our first stop was to drink Greek coffee in this small public square. A great environment, and the coffee was excellent.
Price – 1.80 EUR per cup

Kostarelos Deli – Tassos knows his Greek cheese and he says Kostarelos Deli has some of the best cheese in Athens.
Total price – 14.60 EUR

Mam – Mam is often considered the best Greek cheese pie in Athens, and it’s a perfect street food kind of place. Most people take-away, but they have a standing table as well. The classic Greek cheese pie was my favorite.
Total price – 4.80 EUR

Varvakios Market – This is the Athens central market for meat and seafood. It’s a beautiful market and any lover would enjoy walking around this amazing market.

Miran – Pastourma and Soutzouki – This is a really cool little deli in Athens where you can buy for takeaway or order whatever you see and sit at one of the tables to snack. They are known for their camel pastirma, and it was the best thing we tried – absolutely excellent.
Total price – 4.62 EUR

Bougatsopoleio Thessaloniki – Bougatsa is a famous Greek food pastry. We tried a couple versions, but the best for me was the minced meat filled bougatsa.
Total price – 15.50 EUR

Kostas Soulvaki – Souvlaki, also known as kalamaki is perhaps the best known of all Greek street food or Greek fast food, and Kostas is considered to be one of the best places to eat it in Athens. They grill pork, stuff it into Greek pita, top it with tomatoes, onions, and tomato sauce, and wrap it into a handheld treat. Amazing.
Price – 2.20 EUR per piece

Taverna To Trigono – For dinner, Tassos wanted to take us to one of his favorite restaurants in Athens, a little outside of the city in a place called Kalyvia Thorikou. This is a countryside meat paradise, and they served us some of the best lamb chops I’ve ever had in my life. An amazing meal to end an incredible day of Greek food in Athens.
Lamb chops
Total price for everything – 99 EUR

    I'm sure Tassos didn't MEAN to seem rude when he replied "yeah, yeah, yeah" to basically everything Mark said but he really needs to pick up on a more appropriate English language colloquialism. "Yeah, yeah, yeah" used as a response more than once or twice seems very dismissive and off-putting as though you have no interest in or concern for what the other speaker has just said to you.

    Love ur videos. Happy to see ur son. He has gotten so big

  4. Pranava Gangula says

    Greek food looks so good to eat

  5. Davis Urdaneta says

    Setting politics aside, Greek and Turkish food are quite similar from each other, they just call them with different names. I've been to Turkey last year and I've tried all these food there. Of course it has something to do with the history of both countries. I am visiting Greece soon so I could make a comparison who does it better. Just kidding! I am sure both are really good. 😉

    Turkish food in greek streets

  7. important important says

    OHHHH WAAWWWWWHHWWWWWW

  8. john price says

    I am afraid that I am one of those who are irritated by Marks facial grimaces and lack of criticism of every dish he has ever sampled. Surely he has sampled some rubbish food somewhere in the world?I am starting to think that his trips are sponsored by the tourist industry of each country that he visits.

    When I landed in Germany in Feb 1973 it was rainy cold. I headed for Italy and Greece. Love the food but I only had $ 21 US so Street food I live on. Souvlaki were like 50 cents then.

  40. LadyChann Dun Dem Season says

    As a new finder of Mark …. His channel is amazing , i’ve watched back to back to back !!! I don’t know how he finds all the space to put this food?!!! But his energy is amazing he just seems to vs e s very very nice spirit . Same with his wife & cute son. Ming is a trooper as it’s not easy travelling around the world as an adult let alone with a baby! Strong woman, strong family😊🖤Has he done a food tour in The UK yet and i wonder what his fave country for food is to date ?

  41. Keiron Atkins says

    I've been watching your show for 3yrs, and you make me hungry everytime I watch. Ten mins in, I'm in the kitchen cooking. Love your show , keep up the great work. And one more thing, taking your family with you on your tours, shows how family oriented you and that's terrific.

  42. Daniels Bilal says

  44. Blacq Mann says

    How are u today sir…"YEAYEAYEAYEA"

  45. Lily Flower says

    Hello, Mark! Love your videos! But they make me so jealous!! Some of the foods you've shown us look absolutely mouthwatering. But some, I must say, I'd have to draw the line on. Out of curiosity – is there any food you wouldn't try? And how do you swing traveling to so many places? Are you independently wealthy? 🙂

  46. Diamond Ruby says

    I will become this Man one-day. Eat everything on this Planet!!!!! 💕

  47. Nick Courinos says

    Crete has the best food

  48. Аманда Кирилов says

    Yeah yeah yeah

  49. Theodora says

    poor Mark got taken all the way to Koropí… lol

  50. Elissa Valle says

    The meat all looks amazingly fresh. I love meat that is grilled until it's golden dark and crunchy.
