Greek Veggies

Greek vegetarian food

Food in Athens has hardly ever been recognized for its vegetarian ways, but today we present a restaurant where the sole purpose is to provide Greek-styled food with a vegetarian twist. I know it is hard to picture a vegetarian Gyro, but they do exist and from the looks of it they are delicious.

Dear Culinary Backstreets,
Both my husband and I are vegetarian and we are planning a trip to Athens. We’ve heard that Athens doesn’t have a lot of choices for vegetarians and are a bit worried. Will it be possible for us to eat some of that lovely Greek food? What kind of traditional vegetarian dishes would you suggest we try?

At first glance, it certainly might seem like Athens is a city that doesn’t cater to vegetarians.
