Milos Island

Cuisine of Milos Island for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

The taverns of Milos will allow you to enjoy all the iconic dishes of the Greek cuisine. If you are interested to try everything exactly how the Greeks prepare food for themselves and not for the tourists, then you should look for taverns away from the places where the travelers gather. The more Greek clients in the hall, the greater the likelihood that you are in an institution designed for the local residents. The service here is usually not that quick but the dishes are prepared according to the traditional recipes, without changing anything to please the taste of the tourists.
Milos is known to the whole world as a place of discovery of the famous statue of Venus de Milo, which now is in the Louvre. This is a calm and rather uncrowded island with a rich history … Open
Another very simple way to understand whether you are in a tourist-oriented place or not is to look at the menu. In the taverns, designed for the local residents, there will be no “Greek salad”, because the Greeks themselves call it “home” or “village”. Horiatiki salad includes tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, olives, cheese, and onions. The recipe in different taverns may vary, and therefore you can order this dish for comparison wherever you will get acquainted with the local cuisine.
If you like meat with vegetables, be sure to try the moussaka, eggplant layered casserole, minced meat, and potatoes, seasoned with bechamel sauce. Pasta with minced meat under the same sauce can be found under the name "pastitsio". Most of the meat dishes you will find in psistaria taverns, where they usually serve only meat grilled on coals or skewers. The choice here is quite large – pork chops "Brizola", and chicken "Kotopulo", and cutlets "Bifteki", and delicious lamb ribs "paidakia". By the way, the cutlets in Milos, as well as on other Cycladic islands, are cooked not only from meat and fish that we are used to but also from very exotic ingredients, such as peas or fish caviar.

While talking, the Greeks like to raise their voices and actively gesticulate. When talking to a local resident, remember that some gestures here have a meaning different from the … Open
The taverns that specialize in fish dishes are called psarotaverns. When ordering, pay attention to one detail – if there is a “k”, “kat” or “*” designation opposite the dish that you have chosen, this means that it is prepared not from fresh local fish but from imported frozen one. The price, by the way, is often indicated per kilogram, whereas the real portion usually comes out cheaper. The locals do not only like different types of fish, which are boiled, fried, baked, and stewed here. Seafood is also very popular. Oysters here are often eaten raw, along with lemon juice, the octopus is stewed or baked, calamari is often used in salads.
The local tradition of fast food is also interesting. For a snack people here go to souvlatzidiko, an analog of the barbecue shop. In suvladzidiko, they usually serve lamb, pork, fish, and vegetables kebabs-souvlaki or gyro, which is souvlaki in a pita with sauce, french fries, and vegetables. Among the salads, you should definitely try melitzanosalata from baked eggplants and tzatziki from thick yogurt with pepper and garlic. If you go to the ouzeri, you will be offered anise vodka ouzo and snacks with the common name “mezedes”.
In most cases, you will begin your acquaintance with the island from the main local port – the village of Adamas. Here you can admire not only the typical Cycladic architecture but also … Open
If you like sweets, then pay attention to baklavas and loukoumades. On the eve of holidays, you can find small honey biscuits – melomakarona in all the stores. Many locals eat 10% fat yogurt with nuts and honey for a dessert. Among the soft drinks on the island, coffee and juices are common. If you want to try something strong, then pay attention to Ouzo, rakia vodka, and Metaxa, a hybrid of brandy and wine, infused with herbs. Local wine, by the way, has an excellent taste. Be sure to try retsina, which can usually be found in the refrigerator – it is common to consume this drink chilled. If you drank too much the previous day, then the patsas soup will help you to get rid of the symptoms of indisposition.
