Top 10 must-eat dishes when in Greece

Aside from the famous souvlaki that can only be experienced in its full glory in Greece (let’s not kid ourselves), there are plenty more options when it comes to Greek cuisine that bear a universal seal of approval. Not that one cannot make or try those dishes elsewhere, but there us a somewhat different allure to those staple flavours back home. Everything simply tastes better! Be it the freshness of ingredients or the overall vibe? All we know is that one cannot visit Greece without trying these mouthwatering meals.

Not sure everyone would agree about horta  :hmm:

I love horta! Always make sure I eat it at least once when over there.

Why Xorta are so good for you

Xorta vrasta (boiled leafy greens) is a staple in Greek households and considered a superfood for a very good reason!

When I've ordered horta the waiter has "forgotten" to bring it. Even when it has been served on the next table! Presumably thinking I'm a stupid foreigner who wont like it.

BTW has anyone had the courage to try kokoretsi?! I've seen it in a kitchen but bottled out!  :blink:

Tony, they could be right. About you not liking it, not about you being a stupid foreigner. It's a bit of an acquired taste. Horta is basically boiled greens, so there's a few varieties to go at and what you get can depend on the time of year. One variety - vlita - is also known (although probably not in Greece) as Guernsey pigweed. Enjoy!

BTW - kokoretsi is delicious!

Whichever you try... I'd have a large ouzo standing by  ;)
