Last March (2018), at 200 meters from Peristeri metro station, there appeared a wine bar called.. “Gigifioggos”. We were intrigued by the name alone and seeing as we were nearby we decided to visit it. Passing by, what wins you over right away is its truly impressive decoration, with an atmosphere that transports you to the mid 1900's (to...

“Pinelia” is in Neo Iraklio, opposite the beautiful Agios Loukas square. We first noticed it in 2018, on the day of the “sardine feast”, full of people who were really enjoying themselves, and had kept it in mind. One year later we went to see what it's like on a weekday.What impressed us was something that we hadn't seen...

“Leylim Ley”

Leilem Lei Kurdish Turkish Food
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...

Hidden Athens: Cine Lila

Cine Lila is one of the few remaining places that insist on reminding us of the beauty of an older Athens. For us “older” inhabitants of Kipseli (who used to go to “Kipselaki”, “Pigalle” etc) it was rather remote, but still a favourite destination. It opened in 1967 and today, 51 years later, it still maintains its old...
