TO EIDIKON TAVERN IN PIRAEUS
The moment you step into the tavern you know you have entered another world! The atmosphere is of bygone days with memorabilia displayed on the shelves and walls; some dating back to the 1920's!
The owner, Mr Apostolis, is always there to welcome you with his wife Maria, who often disappears behind the main counter to prepare basic homes style food which is always fresh and truly delicious.
Make sure to try the pan-fried meat balls (keftedakia), about the best in town, which you can enjoy with fries or a tomato salad with olives and onions. If you don't have a cholestorl problem, order their fries topped with 3 fried eggs or the Strapasada (scrambled eggs with tomato and cheese). Other items on the menu include fried liver, spicy sausage, cheese and Fava; all served without frills, the old fashioned way!
I also recommend you try the home produced retsina. It's actually one of the few places in Greece where I wouldn't want to drink anything else!
The place is open daily from lunchtime until 11 pm and on Saturdays, if you are lucky, you can enjoy a couple of guys who come by and play bouzouki and guitar and sing old classic Greek songs.
