What would a Greek salad be without these two everyday elixirs? For superior olive oil, go to To Pantopolio tis Mesogeiakis Diatrofis, a fantastic deli near the Central Food Market and opposite the old Athens Stock Exchange. Specialising in high quality products from all over Greece, a visit here is a crash course in Greek gastronomy. There’s a superb range of olive oils on offer, and the highly trained staff are always ready to explain the different regional olive oils, olive tree varieties and their nutritional value. Check out the Elixir range of vinegars, aged for five years in oak or chestnut barrels and then mixed with fruit nectars, herbs and spices. So good you’ll want to add some crushed ice and drink them! And do pick up other exceptional products while you’re here such as legumes, preserves, and spreads.
