Sumsum is the new favorite amongst street food restaurants in Athens. The name is inspired by the basic ingredient of Arab cuisine, namely sesame, and the space is located on central Solonos street. Traditional Arab specialties are served here daily except Sundays. Chef Ahmand Alraee, of Syrian descent, opened Sumsum aiming to bring the flavors of authentic Arab cuisine closer to the wide public of Athens, offering delicious, high quality dishes at affordable prices. The special salads are curated by expert Abdul, who shares the project. The specialty is falafel, served in pitta bread with hummus and vegetables and also mutabal (puree of smoked egg plant with mince of veal and lamb, in pitta bread). The menu includes taouk (marinated chicken with yoghurt and aromatic herbs in pitta bread), kibbeh and lahmajoun are also popular dishes. Sumsum serves delicious soups also for vegetarians, fattoush salad and other dishes from the Middle East.
