Food on Thassos is nice and fresh. There were of course a lot of vegetables as expected, particularly salads. Because the town has a lot of Eastern European visitors, the salads here seem to have an Eastern European twist – cabbages and potatoes featured widely. And since the island grows some lovely olives, they also featured too.
There were the usual grilled meats – although we did come across some lamb chops here, which we’ve ironically not much thus far.
And being by the sea, we came across some lovely seafood – prawns in a tomato sauce and fried baby calamari (the best). There were also grilled small fish available, but since I didn’t particularly look forward to picking over the bones, I declined.
The great thing about eating on Thassos (and that goes for all of Thrace) is that the prices are half of that of Athens! We’d be able to get a full meal for three people (including drinks) for less than 40 Euros. That’s certainly a bargain.
