Greek Food Review | Trying Traditional Greek Dishes in Santorini, Greece


alright alright good afternoon guys it
is time for lunch slash dinner here in Santorini what’s
the plan yes–you we didn’t have a proper lunch and we were hiking a little
bit early for dinners before five o’clock so yeah this is freedom between
that time zone and we’re starving so we’re gonna go and try some Greek
classics some of our favorite Greek food yeah we’re also gonna be trying some
local Santorini dishes yes and we have a favorite restaurant like we’ve been on
the island for almost a week now and there’s one place that we’ve been back
to like four or five times yeah I know it’s a place we went to the
first night it’s just really good food awesome service we have such a such
friendly waiters inside and they always give us like something extra like a
little extra special thing like free dessert or something and just been great
so we want to go back we’re gonna take you guys there let’s go let’s go and
this is the place they have a menu outside but let’s go in and see what
this is all about what’s the order what to order that is always the dilemma when
you come to a good restaurant you know I think we’re gonna get a whole bunch of
appetizers and a main so we can eat when in Greece you just have to go with the
Greek beer you do and I know we’ve been here about five or six days and we’ve
gone on like three or four really big hikes one of the big today yeah I feel
like any time I do a big hike like I really earned my beer it tastes so much
better and so having an Elfa beer this is just perfect everything we do to be feta cheese and
come to this clay pot with tomatoes and red onions olive oils next to LA it’s
next-level feta it’s taken is taking normal feta to a whole new level
then we got the grape leaves vine leaves those are one of my favorite these are
so good thing my favorite green and they are stuffed with rice and meat usually it’s kind of like a fury llama beans
that comes with sun-dried tomatoes chimes olive oil we just please a little
bit of lemon on top lots of pita with oregano and then Sam’s
Maine extra service oh yeah that’s for free Sam order the chicken noodle yeah
so it’s basically the shape chicken and then you also get salad Ziqi sauce
onions and fries marquita or pita so we we we have a feast of feasts eat the
feet and why don’t you just start going in I’m going to dig into a farmer beans
yeah that is my feeling won’t tried it on the first thing let’s do this let’s
true I’m gonna get you trying everything and then you’re gonna get entering
anything everything so if father beans first what do you think
good I never knew I like fava beans so much we gonna get a little bit of the
sun-dried tomato capers let’s just get all the holy verse happening right there on its own yes okay moving on let me do
the the vine leaf next so many options which ones you choose oh man maybe I
should have got a knife and fork stick it by today
oh wow you don’t take the whole thing sit you look inside this one I think
it’s just rice there we go rice and spices is it good really yes
okay so tend to come with me this case moving on so next you’re gonna try the
fake feather oh this one is so good that’s my favorite and this is our
favorite had the feta cheese on its own when it comes with oregano yeah it’s
still really good but this is just the wheel ah
scrub some tomatoes as well come on I’m so much talk to him yeah try this at home like if you have
invited cheese lying around for a salad consistently I want to I want us to try
to learn how to make yes yeah at home for sure so we’ve had a really nice
breakfast the other day it was like scrambled eggs
we don’t feta in tomato Wow you know what we like feta so much we could eat
it on anything yeah decisions just can’t get up all
right I’m gonna mix it up you started with fava beans I will start
with the great break oh you can tell it’s been coated and olive oil really that’s a good idea just stuffing the
whole thing in there there one bites there’s a one butter for me not so messy
and also I loved it tzatziki sauce yogurt base with cucumber it’s just so
refreshing it is it goes perfectly with them yeah I love how much that we’ve
supported a lot of wine lots of lemon really taste that notes onto the top of
the this I feel like it’s the best for the gamers yes the appetizer in the
house papers make it really salty though yeah
yeah yeah hey look a sun-dried tomato really I like it but it’s not my
favorite no I mean oh man it click and that’s
that’s I still give it a really high score but oh yeah this is my favorite
yeah this is my favorite I’m all about all about the feta cheese that’s so good I could probably better
oh so good so salty and I think when when it’s been baked and like some
juices and sauces like this it’s just absorbed all of those flavors
and can be talked about the colors like look at how vibrant all those dishes are
the greens yellows reds how’s that beer boots really good I’m gonna fill it up to the top yeah
guys it’s time to try the mean in the main I mean I’m feeling I feel like this
could be two people hungry said one hungry Sam yeah it’s usually enough for
Sam yeah on the plate you have like a base of pita plus the pita that they’ve
brought us here and then the shaved meat which is nice and crispy yeah I like
eating it with a bit of tzatziki and maybe a fry I mean the price tagging
along Wow most wonderful that’s not good
I like Lily put paprika on the fries and ball yeah kids it a little kick doesn’t
it is it a little bit yeah if you were
buying this a street food yeah you would get it in like a cold pita and
they just wrap it off that’s right but here it’s more like right I’d see I’d
see the amount they’ve given us is the caverna probably three or four that you
would get on the street they give you a lot of you are here here we go Sam
yeah so I’m aiming for the perfect right here so I’m grabbing a little bit of the
same chickens putting that onto the bread oh no what I need you can serve as
a give him a minute to savor sorry guys
that was a monster right I just love that shave chicken life to me that is
the ultimate and then to combine it with the pita bread salad I think the sauce
and fries it’s just like you’re getting a lot I’m not doing on things all really
tasty you got a little bit of yogurt on your face there probably do and you know
what like we just have so much beauty and I’m so hungry yeah yeah I like pasta
this morning and did like so much actual size guys I love no problem Paul yeah I
feel like we’ve been climbing a mountain every single day there’s a lot of cycle
to do in Santorini also about this dish I should mention there’s a lot of
different varieties getting at souvlaki rompilla chicken souvlaki lamb Tsubaki
pork Tsubaki you know if you prefer your meat on a skewer
Touche that’s the difference between the year the euro style and the block I want
it on the skewer get the sebuah key if you want to shave like this Genaro I
like both but I’ve been enjoying the gyro love them yeah I like the year
because the meat is usually crispy yeah and juicy yeah so yeah that’s my
preference delish English this is how I feel right now
I need a nap what this restaurant is so lovely that we bring you complementary
dessert each and every time without fail you get some Greek yogurt with honey
sometimes it has figs today it looks like caramelized or like candied lemon I
think could be not entirely sure so we’re gonna try some that was so much
food guys it’s like so much dude I’m just like mini coma good Wow you saw them I know he’s
preparing it you saw them putting like copious amounts of honey you’re looking
at with my name and yeah this is something that we’ve been having for
breakfast as our snack desserts Ricky oh here it never gets tired though
ever gets tired never never well feeling bloated should we pan down
to the belly oh we should not so that came to 33 years but we’ve been coming
so often that we’ve been giving they’ve been giving us basically a 10% discount
so they shaved it down to 30 euros plus they gave us that free dessert Plus that
extra bread close just an outstanding meal you can imagine those two beers
three appetizers that big main to share and dessert at the end
yeah those outstanding value and we just love those guys they’re so friendly yeah
it’s just one of them it’s one of those restaurants you go in and they make you
kind of feel like family or friends yeah and you just want to go back and they
treat you so well they take care of you every time mm-hmm and we’ll be back one
more time with one more time yeah with the whole game yeah my parents involved
so that’s how much we like this place highly recommend coming here if you’re
visiting thira on Santorini Island so we’ll see you guys in the next video

  • Love this channel (subscribed) and enjoy how much you 2 take such pleasure in your meals!!!Keep on rockin'.
    Also, you both have very pleasant voices and lovely manners.

  • Relaxing again watching ur vid with an 18yr old scotch…..can’t wait for my year end trip back to Europe… gonna feast & just chill like u guys

  • Everything looks so amazing! Though the vine leaves and feta cheese definitely looks like the best. I've made baked feta cheese at home (though it didn't look exactly like this one) and it is amazing! Feta cheese makes everything better!

  • Food looked sensational. I adore Greek food especially Gyro. Like the Indian Thali restaurant, loyal as always for repeat visits!. Thanks for sharing.

  • Sam and Audrey. That was lot of food, yummy. I had to watch this video while having lunch because it made me hungry.

  • Great video! Now I wanna go back to Greece. My favorite starters were zucchini croquettes and the deep fried feta.. Yeah, very heavy and unhealthy but sooooo good 🙂

  • "Chez Sam'n'Audrey" – that is def what you should name your first born – or alternatively the restaurant you open somewhere down the line, when the old feet start to drag….:-)…..you know what they say. Do what you love..:-)

  • The fava should be spread on the pita, and the domades should be cut with a knife and fork and smeared with the tzatziki 😉

  • I really love your channel guys, my number one favorite Travel video on youtube. Always honest, inspiring, educating and open mind. Keep up the good work!

  • I am watching this video at 1 am in Germany at a temperature of still 27°C or 80°F and enjoy my Ouzo drunken in the Greek style. 1 part of Ouzo with 4 parts of ice-cold water with lots of ice-cubes. The first Greek "guest-workers" came to Germany in the 60's of the last century. Lots of them stayed and some have opened up Greek restaurants which I still appreciate nowadays.

  • That all looked so delicious! The baked feta sounds so yummy. We're missing that Alpha beer ouselves haha. ❤️🇬🇷- Trevor

  • 😍 lovely! I was in Santorini last year and I really enjoy the food, I am in love with the lamb gyro , ahhh!😋😋I just want to come back! Thanks for sharing your experience. We spent 30 days in Europe and gained 15 pounds 😫😩😳….. ja! The food was amazing!

  • I make the scrambled eggs with tomato and fetta at home! It's so yummy especially when you used your own garden tomatoes. We have dolmades quite often as well but I haven't tried making them yet! Fetta is an absolute staple in our household! We are so lucky in Australia, we eat like this all the time. Did you know that Melbourne has the greatest population of Greeks outside of Athens? I'm sure someone will correct me it that's no longer the case. X

  • I would like to take the moment to thank you both for such amazing videos. I love and watch both of your English and Spanish channels! Just enjoy the different perspectives, wish I had found you sooner! You guys are too cute together. Me da risa cuando Audrey está filmando y trata de como que de dirigir a Samuel y el tan humilde responde siempre con gentileza. (No sé si me dejo entender.) Pero bueno, espero algun dia no muy lejano poder visitar Europa! Btw, do you guys have any travel tips or itinerary ideas for someone who wants to visit multiple cities with a child? Starting in Lisbon, then Spain, France and Italy. 1 month total. Thank you so much! Love you guys xx

  • May I please recommend you try metxai mas in Exo Gonia the most traditional place a must authentic proper taverna local the best Greek food of your life if you have a chance please go amazing location you need a car worth it this is the best place in Santorini to eat

  • vosostros seran griegos en un par de dias como mucho , vuestro sangre esta herviendo , sangre caliente griego esta absorviendo vvosotros . Audrey mi amor como te gusta engullar de comida , que tragona eres!

  • Loved all the dishes, specially the fava beans and fetta cheese. The Mediterranean food looks so healty, so fresh, so many vegetables, spices, olive oil. And then wine and beer lol I definetely could live in an island like Santorini

  • Hi Sam n Audrey nice video. I've been watching you guys for couple of months now and im enjoying your videos. When was this filmed? I notice the people at back wearing thick jackets. We are going to there this end of August.

  • I can actually feel how extremely excited you folks were to the food. There's nothing better to have a scrumptious meal to end the day!

  • greek yogurt in the state is not made from sheep milk its made from cow milk,so when buying yogurt from a sup mark read the label ,if it doesn't say sheep milk throw it back on the shelf.

  • You should visit a real Greek restaurant with traditional Greek food in your video you show only the basics, Our Cuisine is mutch substantial offers alot of seafood and Meat Specialities.

  • I don't know if it has been said in the comments, but Santorini's fava is made from a kind of yellow split pea and not actual fava beans (broad beans in the UK).

  • An idea from a Greek, come winter in Greece and find the Greek food we eat in our villages, you will be amazed 👍

  • next time you need to try not so touristically places. Also fava is made from vetch http://welovegreekfood.com/shop/203-157-large/f.jpg

  • A little late to comment (a week 😛 ) but the feta I usually do just in foil….large piece of foil folded up double or triple and fold up the sides to make a little 'dish'. Then a slab of feta (greek is always best) sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, olive oil, oregano, pepper if you want but not necessary. You can add capers if you want. I usually do it on the bbq! 🙂

  • You guys should have asked them to serve you the local beer, called Volcan. There are 4 different ones, Black, Blonde, Grey and White and they are all amazing, I can't even start to describe their taste…honey, citrus, bergamot, lemon, bitter orange…

  • So delish. Everything is so fresh there. Even though it's healthy, I gained 5 pounds in 2 weeks there. Some of the best food in the world. The baklava and gelato adds up. I can have Greek food everyday. You must visit island of Sifnos for some unique Greek gastronomy.

  • guys the sweet above the yuort is called "spoon sweet", "gly(i)ko tou(U) kou(U)taliou(U)",(because usually you just take a small spoon and have a spoon of the jar with your greek/turkish bitter coffee) actually is the most tradirional technique of making a sweet out of everything. There is, tomato, orange, cherry, figs, pomegrand, cucamber, rose petals(yes!!), carrot, lemon, or whatever…it is boiled and left in tons of sugar for manyyyy days and then it is packed in glass jars and can be preserved for many years cause of sugar. Because it can be made almost from any kind fruit, vegetable or something like that and it can be preserved out of frige for years, it is so common and so part of our culture. The villages (and we have tons of villages) make them all the time to feed the families and so for most of greeks reminds us grandmams.

  • μαλακα τους βαζουν 7 ντολμαδακια και ποιος ξερει ποσο τους το χρεωνουν

  • I would not pay 33 for what you had. Its was not worth it. The food you had was not that great and as a Greek myself I would not eat it.

  • I'm sorry I don't want to hate but that grape leave thing End absolutely the other things are all from the turkish cuisine if you don't believe good for you but don't let this flop they wanted to take baklava 2 but we got it thanks to the court! I will never let someone take somting of turkey and actt like it's of their country okay let's be honest yoghurt is from Greece I love Greece but sometimes it's like thats not of your country!
