Kalamaki Bar in Koukaki is only three blocks away from the Acropolis, in the tourist area of Athens historic centre. You can come here easily using means of public transport, as it is very close to the Syngrou-Fix metro station, as well as to local tram and bus stops.
At this modern grill restaurant featuring tables on the pedestrian street you can have tasty, juicy grilled meat (from small Greek farms), refreshing salads with a twist and freshly-cut French fries from Cyprus, which are cut by hand on a daily basis and are fried in olive oil.
The big variety of souvlaki (kalamaki) –the name is not a coincidence– as well as the fact that all the raw ingredients are Greek, is what makes it so popular. Apart from the classic pork and chicken souvlaki, you can also choose the lamb or beef one, even kebab.
Round off your meal with either a chocolate log or yoghurt accompanied with spoon sweet, while those of you who are regulars will be pleasantly surprised by the 3-4 new proposals on the menu, such as the delicious eggplant salad.
