Greek Food is only one of the reasons to visit Greece, although many will argue it is one of the best ones. Some other reasons are the beautiful scenery, swimming in the sea, the hot sun and of course the hospitality of the people. My country may be going through a rough patch but this doesn’t affect the way we welcome the travelers! If you are visiting Greece or plan to, please don’t hesitate to ask us anything, such as places to eat or how to go about being a vegan while staying here. In smaller villages people may not know what vegan is, but in islands and places that attract visitors more and more vegan options show up on the menus of the restaurants. You can ask for horiatiki salad without feta and Yemista without meat, you can find these two dishes everywhere in Greece this time of the year. Swimming in the crystal clear blue waters under the Mediterranean sun is enough to relax you and make you fall in love with this place! We have added some photos from here in Patras for you to see as well in this post.
A big thank you to Kathrine from Oh She Cooks for her idea, collaboration and the support she is showing to Greece.
