Delicious Food on our first night in Athens!
Posted on 04 / 05 / 2015
My partner and I arrived in Greece today and were originally going to try out the Vegetarian Restaurant 'Avocado' - but it was closed early because its Sunday so we found 'Rosebud'.
We ordered a bead and dip starter (I can't remember what it was called - but it said it was traditionally greek) and it was delicious. We ran out of bread and still had dip remaining so they brought us free bread and free olives - we have just spent a month in Turkey and my boyfriend said these olives were better than any we tried in Turkey! (and we loved the Turkish olives!).
We both ordered fresh juices - mine was the seasonal, and my partner had banana & mint. For mains he ordered the pumpkin almond ravioli (not vegan - he absolutely loved it! He was practically licking the plate clean!) and I ordered the Thai Turmeric Coconut Curry - it was so delicious! It had mixed vegetables, chickpeas and a delicious sauce, served with rice.
The staff were lovely and even gave us a free shot of oozo! I was pretty keen to try a raw vegan dessert - but unfortunately they were all out of vegan desserts so my partner ordered a chocolate cheesecake - which was actually listed as 'chocolate pastry' - so not at all what we expected when it arrived, but he said it was pretty delicious nonetheless.
The only con's I can find is that there were no vegan desserts left and also it was fairly expensive (we are not sure if this is normal prices for Greece as it was our first meal here - however it is more than double the price of all the restaurants we went to in Turkey so we found it to be very expensive.
Would definitely go back! :)
