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 orange, accompanied by vanilla ice cream, honey and caramelised almonds, kazan dipi ice cream for those who prefer a taste of The East, Greek coffee ice cream, with 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 what you will choose: true enjoyment derived from a simple, traditional treat.
At LUKUMADES you will also find a wide variety of 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 [brioche (filled with any kind of cream available), granola bars, biscuits, bagels] to accompany your coffee or organic tea. There are also syrupy sweets, such as portokalopita (orange cake), karidopita (walnut cake), and ekmek (pudding with syrup and custard) to satisfy even the most demanding sweet tooth.
