Avocado

Athens, Greece

The fellow guests at Avocado are all regulars, and so are we, since during our short stay in Athens we went back daily to a small quiet table in Nikis Street, at any time of the day. There is a yoga and Pilates studio on the other side of the street – and we were tempted to schedule a lesson in our agenda, while the vegetarian minimarket is right next door. In a tiny alley of Syntagma neighbourhood in Athens, literally the chaotic centre of the capital, develops a universal idea of love and nourishment we never grow tired of, especially on a journey abroad. Rice, cereals, vegetables, burgers, soups, salads, and extracts, have the most optimistic and easy-going names in the world – Gratitude, The Herb Garden, Beautiful Day, Life’s a Rainbow, Hug a Tree – and form a vegetarian menu that will make some snort and many others smile widely (like us).

Athens’s flags wave endlessly in the hot wind. It is as if meltemi came here expressly to make these white and blue stripes dance above main doors and beside tourist restaurants’ signs. You will find them also in the shops that sell the last film rolls left, miniature Greek statues, and slippers with pompons. You will find them everywhere, and each time wonder: have they always been here…
