Have you ever been to Greece? Or tried any delicious Greek food? If you have, you will understand me.
Simple while thick and profound taste is what makes Greek food so delicious and leaves a lasting impression. Once you try Greek yogurt, feta cheese, cod or lamb in Greece, such words as tyropita, gyros, souvlaki, bakaliarou will forever be your reference of the world of taste.
However, what do you do if you are not in Greece and you feel like something Greek? Well, it’s obvious that you go and search for a good Greek restaurant and if you are lucky, you find one.
I did get lucky and discovered a nice Greek restaurant in Barcelona, and not even one, but a small chain of them: “Dionisos”
So, what is there about Dionisos?
There are five restaurants in Barcelona, but my favourite is the one in Aribau.
In fact, all restaurants have a simple wooden warehouse design with some Greek decor elements and traditional music that creates an enchanting atmosphere.
However, what is really worth talking about is food in Dionisos.
What I would recommend is definitely “plato gyros” – small pieces of lamb roasted on a stick with creamy tsatsiki sauce. Interestingly, this dish is called by the way it is prepared: “turning around”.
Besides, feta cheese baked in foil with vegetables is a perfect starter.
To accompany the meal, you should give a try to Naoussa wine, that is moderately fruity with a soft tanine aftertaste.
However, there is much more to be said about this trip and Taste of Paris. Stay tuned for the new review! 😉
