Guide to Street Food: Greece

Greek food is one of those cuisines that is purely appetizing and full-flavored, probably due to its many uses of aromatic spices like oregano, mint, garlic, thyme, basil and fennel seed.

Another of the many ingredients that is a “stamp” of Greek food is the olive oil, which comes from the abundance of olives grown in this land of beauty. Some other foods used frequently would be yogurt, honey, vegetables, fruit, wine and seafood. The geography of Greece is greatly sustained by the breeding of goats and sheep, hence leading to subsequent popularity of their meat.

So many of the well-known Greek foods we know of today have culinary roots and influences from Italy, France, Persia and Arabia, not to mention the influence from the Romans.
