Mani Mani, cuisine of the Peloponnese

In Greek, Mani means ‘Magne', a peninsula south of the Peloponnese. If this restaurant is called ‘Mani Mani' it is because one enjoys this cuisine twice as much.

In the Koukaki neighbourhood of the Greek capital, this old doctor's house catches the eye. Hesitate no further and climb up two sets of stairs. You will then be able to sit at a table in a bistro atmosphere and suddenly, magically, you are no longer in Athens. The kitchen here has accents of southern Greece. The menu offers dishes typical of that region, like beans with Magne sausage and orange or a chickpea salad and cabbage, but also homemade pasta, accompanied by dried tomatoes, basil and feta. Everything is delicious, tasty, and fragrant, so you'll undoubtedly ask the chef for a particular recipe to try and re-do it once back home. If you go for lunch, remember you are in Greece and restaurants open late. In this case, not until 2:00 pm.
