What to Eat in Greece?
While sailing Greece, try the local cuisine. Just like other cuisines of the Mediterranean, it uses a lot of olive oil, vegetables and herbs, together with wine, fish, shellfish and cheese. However, it uses some flavorings more than other Mediterranean countries, e.g. oregano, mint, bay laurel, garlic, dill and onion. Grain foods are also an essential part of the Greek cuisine. While in Greece, you can eat in a taverna or estiatorio, restaurants serving traditional home cooking at reasonable prices. Some traditional specialties such as souvlaki, gyros or pita can often be found in fast food style. Typical Greek dishes include, among other, the moussaka with eggplant and spiced meat, tzatziki, a creamy cucumber-yogurt dip and baklava, a sweet dessert.
