Eating & drinkingEating & drinking

Saunter around the well-known Ladadika area, near Aristoteles Square, and you will find a large number of traditional restaurants and ouzo bars. Enjoy grilled dishes like kontosouvli, giaprakia and gardoubes with a glass of wine or ouzo. If you like seafood, be sure to choose the mussel pilaf, grilled sardines, frutti di mare, saganaki prawns or stuffed squid in one of the many seafood restaurants the city possesses. Thessaloniki has a large range of cuisines: traditional Macedonian, Oriental and European, as well as dishes from refugees from all over the world. Try the pastries and the cuisine of Constantinople. And finally the traditional bougatsa (filled with either cheese or sugared cream), the tasty syrups, the ekmek kadaifi, the seker pare, the touloumpa, and the famous trigona of Panorama are all worth trying.
