Farm to Table, Homestyle, Best Value: Melilotos used to be in Xenofontos str, from where they made daily delivery of homemade meals, until recently when they moved to Kalamiotou very close to Kapnikarea square in downtown Athens, with their very own restaurant. Mama¢s kitchen is still the main point, with fresh ingredients and tasty selections which change every day. Salmon in the oven, moussakas with spinach and besciamel with yoghurt, cockerel with homemade pasta, and traditional sweet cherry preserve for dessert. Must tries are the macrobiotic salad, and the healthy soups with nettle, pumpkin, ginger and coconut milk, or in the summer months tomato soup with cool cucumber, mint and yoghurt.
