Opposite the central market in Athens, in the heart of the commercial hub of the city, Umami Tales is Vasilis Akrivos's latest project, who we already know from alternative Psariston fish taverna, in Neo Heraklio. This is a delicatessen with many new products, and with emphasis on hot and spicy sauces.
In this shop that will remind you of a very old grocery shop at first, you will find a wide variety of hot and spicy sauces from USA, England and Australia, for those who can take it and love flavours that are not just spicy, but very spicy.
However, Umami Tales has another soft spot, found upstairs, and it is no other than chocolate. As with the sauces, here you will find something more than just plain chocolate. Be ready to taste unexpectedly original flavours such as chocolate with bacon, cheese, salt, etc., from Italy and Austria.
Still, there is more to discover in Umami Tales. Apart from imported goods you will also find Greek products that stand out. Honey from Florina with Kozani saffron, olive oil from Crete flavoured with oregano, extraordinary marmalades, etc. Will you be able to resist?
