Went for dinner with family.
Our origins are rooted in the island of Chios, and we thought it would be a good idea to get the taste.
Excellent welcoming hosts (not the owner who is from Chios though), spacious tables and a hearty smile.
We opted for both seafood and meat and they were both nice.
Chios salad with rocket, cherry tomatoes, anchovies was amazing and rich. Horta salad, also great, but needed more lemon and proper olive oil instead of "ladolemono" that goes with fish.
Grilled Mastello cheese was a sweet passage to Chios: soft and tasty!
Gonos kalamari was yummy so were the steamed mussels.
Pork marinated chips with freshly cut chips was a dream! Tender, fresh, with a pinch of oregano, simple and blissful.
We had a beer and one of the best tsipouro around the world: the famous Babatzim (which was not cold unfortunately and needed to spoil with ice), and at the end were offered a shot of mastic liquor.
Hint: do not opt for raki, it is not a good one although it comes from Crete, but it is non-label and from a region that has no good raki.
Overall, it was a good choice for Chalandri/Athens. A bit expensive, for 3 we paid almost €100, and honestly, there are no real dishes and options from Chios. Just a seafood meze spot with fair food.
Go, but better go to Chios, in Armolia village to feel and taste the real taste of Chios!
