Cookoomela Grill

It looks like just another run-of–the-mill souvlaki joint. But Cookoomela Grill is busy re-inventing Athens’ most famous street food. Their delicious vegetarian souvlaki are built around the Cookoomela mushroom tribe. Bestsellers are the Red Amanita with avocado, vegan mayonnaise and tomato salsa, and the Cookoomela Kebab with lentils, tomato salsa and almond cream, both at bargain prices. The chips, fried in cold-pressed 80% virgin olive oil, deserve a shout-out too, along with the eco-savvy biodegradable wrappings.

Local Green Organica

You’ll feel healthier just by stepping inside this fashionable new lunch spot in zippy Perikleous Street. The décor has all the zing of biting into a crisp green apple: from the Scandi-cool woodwork to the hanging pot plants and feature wall of fresh produce. Everything looks as clean as a whistle too. Polish off an enormous Portobello mushroom and tofu wrap (two could easily share); a curry cauliflower bowl with toasted almonds, raisins and aged balsamic; or build your own dream salad bowl from an evolving menu that specialises in raw local ingredients. Refresh with the cucumber, ginger and lime brew. It's the perfect tonic to a steamy Athens day. We also love how Local Green sits cheek-to-cheek with the classic taverna next door. It really brings home how old and new Athens are happily sharing the same stage these days.
