Opposite the former Evelpidon Military Academy park (next to “Pedion Areos” park) there is another little hidden gem we discovered by chance. The Kurdish restaurant “Leilim Lei” can easily claim a position among the best of its kind. It is always kept very clean, while it offers exceptional ingredients (truly virgin olive oil), affordable prices, decent portions without the common (for this kind of cuisine) overuse of herbs and spices – you won’t leave with a heavy stomach – and vegetarian options. It is also pet-friendly (if you sit at a table outside). We were impressed by its remarkable service and the exceptional behaviour of its staff.
Hidden Athens” is a town guide written by people who live in Athens, visit its shops and places, and do not simply copy other texts. We keep record of our town's nice places, especially those concerning entertainment, and anything that impresses us. Our guide is aimed at tourists who want to witness the special parts of Athens (which they will not learn about through a tour guide), but also at anyone who wants to get to know Athens a bit better, and learn beforehand whether a place has something special to offer, whether it is accessible to people with disabilities, whether they can take their dog with them, the prices, etc. We are not interested in writing negative reviews. If we do not like something, it is simply not worth mentioning in “Hidden Athens”.
