Krokos opened in Athens in November 2011 and is owned by the architect Nicholas Krokos and decorator Katerina Krokos, aiming at becoming a reference point in the gourmet society of Athens and focusing on promoting high quality local products that are not found easily on the market. Olives, appetizers, various types of cheese, pasta, honey, marmalades, biscuits, spices and herbs are only some of the delicious products the shop offers. It's worth tasting the artichoke hearts in oil, the delicious preserved fruit, the grilled aubergines and peppers. Truffle products are also available, and the range is continually renewed.
