Strofi

One of those restaurants in Athens to get a nice view of the Acropolis.

It is apparently quite a highly ranked restaurant in TripAdvisor, like top 100 out of 2.6k restaurants - based on contributors.

So sad the Acropolis was actually in the midst of repair work. Still amazing any how.

Fried Cod with Vegetables (€12)

I think we all should just stick to meat when in Greece. Their fish is just such a waste with that thick batter.

Veal Stew

Very flavourful from stewing it. No complaints from any of us.

 Milk Pie (€5)

We wanted to be adventurous with their desserts but unfortunately I didn't like any of it.

 Baklavas (€5)

The Baklava that didn't taste like the Middle-East version. Those cinnamon powder almost killed me. I mean, why cinnamon powder on desserts? It's an acquired taste!

  Ekmek, Sweet Yeast Bread with Ice Cream and Sweet Cherry (€6.50)

Ice cream is the only "normal" and more common thing. The Ekmek is just weird. I can't describe the taste, it's an acquired taste too, I've never had something like that before. Either you'll love it or hate it.

Because it was May at that time when we were there, daylight hours are much longer. We left before we could get a glimpse of it when it's darker.

I'm thinking that I must've ordered the wrong food. As I did a bit of searching here and there, people seem to be ordering everything but the ones I've posted. Well, Veal Stew is quite popular actually. The ambience is actually pretty good, it's quite cosy and we get a nice view too. :)
