new age dolma..

thria

some tender stuffed leaves rolls, a cosmopolitan seafront area, a fresh, minimal open space and some fine Greek tastes. “thria”(name of ancient Greek fig leaf dolma) is a restaurant newbie that somehow has always been there-in Thessaloniki. stare through its crystal-clear glass, something’s cooking. the former “sempriko” owner is to blame!

there you can try a perfectly textured mâche salad with peach, parmesan flakes and mustard seed dressing, a silky “twisted” orange shrimp risotto with cognac, cinnamon and cream, a different amaranth pop-corn breaded turbot with squid ink rice crackers, lemon cream and baby courgette puree and some comforting veal cheeks and oxtail ragout pappardelle.

geometry of meatballs..

diagonios

basic meatball geometry rules; not a question of shape, size or seasonings just quality meat. hundreds of secret practices and processes have turned these juicy various shaped ground meat goodies into science! “diagonios”(diagonal in Greek – named after the area) is a retro grill house located in the center of Thessaloniki, offering such cuties since 1977.

let’s study some figures now. a fresh aromatic tomato salad, some crispy hand-cut fries, a creamy Russian salad, an absolute grilled liver, a tasteful gyros(yes the famous one) and the best-est form of all, the tender meatball sausages aka soutzoukakia with red pepper flakes aside! don’t need to be a genius to get these mathematical concepts.

a star born in the streets of Thessaloniki..

i recently visited Thessaloniki and the first thing i heard was “go check out this new place called estrella”. so as a food and new trend lover i rushed to see what was going on there. i saw a little cosy street restaurant serving some kind of comfort food. i mean if the burger bagels, the eggs with mushrooms on crispy bread or the mama’s chicken do not bring you peace, i don’t know what will. except that it also serves some cool smoothies and juices and of course the famous Spanish beer estrella. but that is not all my friends. the one thing that will surely lift your soul is served in that place and has a name “bougatsan”! imagine a freshly baked croissant mixed up with custard filling(the one used to make the traditional Greek delicacy named bougatsa). if that cannot help, take a look at the picture that follows this text. recently the chef started preparing a cigar looking version of this dessert. so go reach for that star, you sure can.
