Thassos revizitat 11. Mancarea in Thassos / Thassos Revisited 11. Food in Thassos



Souvlaki is, of course, the best known disg in Greece. Chicken or pork and French fries – everybody likes this mixture. But if you add a baked aubergine, with garlic, it’s even better! A green figs jam on fat, Greek, yoghurt on the house, complete the meal in Phillipi.

In Limenaria we ate another traditional Thassos dish,  called exhotico. It’s pork baked together with carrots, garlic and peppers.

In the evening, in Potos, the taverns are full of tourists who came from different locations on the island for the good food. We ate at the “Irene” tavern, recommended by many Romanians of forums and blogs.

Kazaviti was not only a beautiful mountain village, we also ate well at  one of the tavern in the centre of the village. We choosed simple dishes like baked huge white beans and stuffed wine leaves with sour cream.

And because we appreciated the white beans so much, we recidivated in Theologos. We add a pork and lamb grill.

The food is very good in Greece, and it goes well with a cold Mythos bear, a Greek wine or a retsina.
 

Desigur ca souvlaki este, pentru turisti, cel mai cunoscut fel de mancare din Grecia. Frigaruile de pui sau porc, insotite de cartofi prajiti sunt pe placul tuturor.

Asa ne-am gandit si noi la Phillipi. Cand masa a fost completata si de o vanata dolofana, coapta, desfacuta in doua si presarata cu usturoi, lucrurile au stat si mai bine! La sfarsit, din partea casei, am primit dulceata de smochine verzi, pe un pat de iaurt gras, grecesc, cu un gust inconfundabil.

In Limenaria, am incercat un fel traditional din Thassos, numit exhotico, adica carne de porc coapta in 
folie, cu morcov, usturoi si ardei. Am mancat insa si mai banalul piept de pui cu sos de smantana si ciuperci, un fel international, dar nu mai putin gustos.

Seara, in Potos, tavernele sunt pline de turistii care vin din diverse locatii din imprejurimi, atrasi de mancarea buna de aici.

La Kazaviti, nu mi-a placut doar satul in sine, scufundat in vegetatie, ci si mancarea simpla dar cu un gust delicios, datorita ierburilor specifice, adaugate la retete. Ce am mancat? Fasole alba, cu bob urias, la cuptor si sarmalute in foi de vita.
in acea zi de mai, la ora pranzului, eram singurii clienti in Kazaviti (si turisti)

Si fiindca ne-a placut atat de mult fasolea, am recidivat in taverna din Theologos! Am insotit-o insa de carne de miel la protap si de un gratar din carne de porc.

In Grecia, mancarea e gustoasa si daca o insotesti cu o bere Mythos, cu un vin grecesc sau cu o retsina, ti-o vei aminti multa vreme...
