Souvlaki is probably the most well known Greek food and is by far the most popular street food for Athenians and visitors. Kostas on quiet Pentelis street, just off Mitropoleos, is considered one of the best and probably the most famous souvlaki, as the various newspaper articles on the walls testify. In this small, unpretentious shop, souvlaki has been made since 1950, and the aroma is tantalizing. Souvlaki is made with small pieces of tender veal or pork, cooked with art and served on a small skewer- kalamaki in Greek- or wrapped in pita bread together with tomatoes, yoghurt, parsley, onions. At Kostas you get the essentials, in three varieties: souvlaki on a skewer served with small pieces of pita bread, souvlaki wrapped in pita bread and hamburger in pita bread with all the accompanying vegetables. Passersby, neighbors, tourists, make a point of tasting Kostas souvlaki, and customers have been faithful over the years, appreciating the quality and taste.
