The all-time classic, favourite loukoumades (deep-fried dough) are the stars at LUKUΜΑΔΕΣ, on Aiolou Street (Agias Eirinis Square) in Athens. Their simplicity, freshness and authenticity attract both the young and the old alike with their delicious taste and mouth-watering appearance.
In a beautiful and modern interior, yet with a nostalgic atmosphere, the old classic recipe –simple and balanced– comes into being, “marrying” simplicity with a variety of tempting flavours perfectly. While the basic recipe for loukoumades remains the same, it has been adjusted with the healthy ingredients produced in the country, turning our favourite childhood treat into a daily indulgence.
The dough is handmade, while loukoumades are fried on a gas cooker with quality oil that is frequently changed, making all the difference. Filled with chocolate cream, lemon, mastiha, banana, or apple filling, accompanied with vanilla ice cream, honey and caramelised almonds, or kantaifi ice cream for those who prefer a taste of The East, pistachio ice cream with chunks of pistachio, and liquid chocolate praline poured over them or in the traditional version with honey and cinnamon or with caster sugar. The result is the same no matter how you choose them: true enjoyment derived from a simple, traditional treat.
At LUKUMADES you will also find a wide variety of specialty coffees for those of you who would like to enjoy a coffee of the finest quality as well as other delicious beverages, such as lemonade, sour cherry juice, etc., and many breakfast choices including brioche (filled with any kind of cream available), granola bars, cookies, bagels as well as the brand new chocolops (lukumades’ newest creation) to accompany your coffee or organic tea.
