Bairaktaris

Mr. Bairaktaris, the owner of this historic kebab house has been feeding both the Athenian élite and working classes for decades. He loves being photographed with his celebrity customers and putting the framed pictures on the dining hall’s walls. Its strategic location on Monastiraki Square ensures it is perennially packed, despite fierce competition by its equivalent neighbours. The kebab, which is actually an elongated meatball flavoured with spices, is very tasty and the grease will keep you going for a whole day if you’re on a budget holiday!

United Arab Emirates,
The souvlaki here has changed in the last two to three years. It doesn't have the same taste it used to and they don't sell it in pita bread if you're sitting at a table for some reason. I didn't enjoy it last time I went. The meat seemed a little over cooked and hard, compared to other souvatzidika where the meat is nice and tender.
