Just a 15-minute walk from the Acropolis, this small, often crowded eatery is home to what many consider the best (and cheapest) souvlaki in the city. Set on the northeast corner of Monastiraki Square, the casual restaurant contains little more than an open charcoal grill, a handful of tables, a takeout window, and an adjacent outdoor patio, which provides great people-watching. The signature souvlaki consists of lamb, chicken, or pork kebabs on warm pita, topped with grilled tomato and onion, and dipped in homemade tzatziki (garlicky cucumber-yogurt sauce). The dish is typically paired with French fries and local Mythos beer.
