it was back in 1954 when a sweet couple from a Greek village decided to head toward the city of Athens in search of a more prosperous life. and there under a young mulberry tree in Palaio Faliro area(a southern suburb), they started their own business; a restaurant. “mouria”(which means mulberry tree) has been serving high quality food ever since. in this case the term quality does not refer to fancy names, inspired creations or glamorous presentations. it solely involves the freshest ingredients and perhaps the most skilled grill cook around; the family’s son! as you can easily guess, you will eat some exquisite meat there, like pluck, sausages, steaks, chicken, lamb and more. i usually enjoy some tender pleurotus mushrooms, a juicy steak, a light chicken fillet and some colorful boiled vegetables and of course some rich red wine. the last time i also tasted a wild boar with chestnuts and plums, so thoroughly cooked that literally melted in my mouth. the atmosphere is cosy, the environment simple and the staff really friendly and always alert; no wonder why this “recipe” is still successful.
so go my friends visit this traditional place and watch the old mulberry tree as it still grows!
