A Quick Bite to Eat in the hippest area of Athens
Athens is still glamorous and hip even if you are not in the center of it. Chalandri is one of the most popular suburban areas north from the center. A lot of Greeks seem to not have a problem commuting to have a drink in Chalandri even if they live quite far. With this said, we would like to introduce the top 4 places to grab a quick bite to eat in Chalandri with affordable prices. What makes these places so different amongst themselves? They are all different cuisines.
Ancho is considered to have the tastiest Mexican food in the Northern Athenian suburbs (at least that’s what people on TripAdvisor are saying)! What would you like to eat? They have it all! Tacos, burritos, nachos, tortillas and quesadillas with a guacamole to die for. And if you are feeling adventurous? They serve margaritas, too!
Ancho’s price menu is decent and it has been known of them offering deals to customers from time to time. Ancho is a fast food restaurant and this is established by the window food display. They follow a self-service policy meaning quick service and a loud environment. Finally, the setting often reminds Americans of the well-known restaurant chain, Chipotle. (Google Maps)
Mongo is a new fast paced restaurant in Chalandri. In the past 2 years, a lot of noodle places have popped up labeling themselves as street food. What makes Mongo different from all the others?
Mongo can bring you a dish to your table, that normally you’d pay a lot more for, with the largest amount being 10€. In Greece, eating duck with 10 euro is a good deal. Their menu starts with starters and gives customers all the in between choices as well. Salads, soups, main dishes and desserts are offered. We all know how Chinese flavors are the mouthwatering fireworks of all cuisines. (Google Maps)
The Falafel Project
The Falafel Project is a small fast food eatery in Chalandri that specializes in the Middle Eastern falafel also known as a chickpea croquette. Which means, no meat. Falafel Project has the same setting as Ancho, a big display and the customer can choose what to add into their pita bread or their falafel plate.
The choices a customer is given are so many, sometimes they are overwhelming! Some of them are tahini, eggplant, quinoa, tomato and yogurt infused with spices. The price range is very low for the food servings this place offers and, finally, the environment is very clean and the service is fast along with the personnel’s politeness. (Google Maps)
Koi Sushi Bar
Koi Sushi Bar is a franchise that has been blooming in Athens in a very fast pace, ever since it first opened in Syntagma square. Clean and quick food served to your table with soy sauce, wasabi and thin slices of ginger. The choices are crab, tuna, salmon and many more among some vegetarian choices as well.
Who said that vegetarians can’t have sushi, if they want to? Because it is sushi and it does not need any necessary cooking (except for the sticky rice), the service is very quick. Within 10 minutes the customer has been served and ready to dine. Overall the eating experience at Koi does not take more than 30 minutes. The prices are very approachable for the quality Koi serves and the assortment of your choices is big. (Google Maps)
