Michelin Starred – Fine Vegan Dining in Athens

Apologies for my absence but my life changed completely in the last year and a half (long story) and I haven’t had a lot of time to update the blog. I got caught up in a lot of personal issues and I just realized that it’s been forever since my last post.

Over the past couple of months I visited some of the top and Michelin awarded restaurants in Greece. Luckily enough all the chefs were happy to serve me a special vegan dinner – which most of the times made the non vegan people around me seriously jealous of my meals.

First stop at Spondi.Β  Here I enjoyed a fabulous vegetable terrine, an amazing tomato salad – that had all the tomatoes you can think off – including a tomato sorbet (love) and a dish with all you can think of veggies (fresh vegetables, grilled vegetables, fried vegetables, crispy vegetable chips)- including an amazing rice cream dip on the its side. I also had a vegetable risotto but the previous dish was my favorite one here!

Second stop at Hytra. Here I enjoyed a lovely fresh green salad, with hazelnuts and the most delicious hazelnut dressing I ever had. For main I had a mushrooms dish and for dessert a delicious chocolate caramel dessert with hazelnut ice cream on the side.

Third stop was at Varoulko.Β  I had a vegetable, beans and angel hair pasta soup. A salad with caramelized lentils, rocket and fava beans mousse. The most delicious risotto I ever had in my life. Seriously, you could feel each vegetable at every bite! There was also an amazing coconut chocolate dessert.

This was by far the best #risotto I ever had
