Who has time for meal prepping when you live in the second most awake city in the world? Athenians do tend to take care of their diet, but we also often fall head first into the city’s bustling street food scene. Imagine, now, how fast our mediterranean habits go out the window when a street food festival is in town. “The country’s biggest food festival”, as they claim to be, Athens Street Food Festival returns for four deliciously long weekends at the Old Train Depot. There will be souvlaki, of course, but street food in Athens is not all about skewered meat and pita wraps. Sink your teeth into the juiciest burgers in Athens, explore our rich ethnic and fusion scene or go full Greek with a spanakopita and loukoumades combo. Non meat eaters and sweet tooths can go nuts (sorry) on the local vegan, vegetarian and patisserie tableau. More details on the programme of the festival will be announced soon, so make sure to check their website (and save your appetite.)
