Good food in Paje is not as a difficult case to solve as in Kendwa, yet many of the available options are not great.

The so called fisherman beach BBQ that takes place just by the Africana's Restaurant & BBQ beach sign turned out good for us, I give it 9/10!

Zanzibar is vast & different parts feel like a different island, not to mention the roads & distances!

Kendwa is perhaps the best beach (rightwards of Kendwa Rocks). Good food was an extremely difficult case to solve in Kendwa, the best eatery we tried was The Lebanese Cuisine, I give it 8/10!

After a couple of meals in Stonetown we set to try Hilton's Taarab restaurant @doubletree. It was interesting but resembled a Lada Niva in so many ways to our surprise!

The prawns were great and plentiful but the chicken curry tasted and weighted like high-grade plane food.

Quality control matters, so do manners and so does a working POS terminal.

Our experience was almost allright but definitely not up to the Hilton name, I give it 7,5/10!

After covering 5500 km by 4x4 in 2 weeks, flying to our last stop felt good & sensible!

Soon after landing in Zanzibar we realised Tanzania has not much in common with South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

As usual, food & drink speak for the history, culture, geolocation & climate of places!

Lukmaan's dishes were good, I give it 8/10!

When on the go, a medium boiled egg with tuna and mayo can keep you going for hours, especially if ginger beer is part of the menu!

Glad we only came across crocodiles while on the speedboat, they can be faster than humans when attacking 💨

After 1600 km & 72 hours (of mostly driving & sleeping) from Kuruman to Twee Rivieren in South Africa, to Kaa North, to Kang and Ghanzi in Botswana, the tourist town of Maun provided for us the first decent eatery & one of the very few in Maun, Germain's French Connection @frenchconnectionmaun, I give it 8,5/10!

We tried really hard to find local Botswana food but it was impossible to our surprise, with the exception of street food stalls with visibly low food hygiene.

Not bad considering we found no eateries at all in the town of Ghanzi.

Food quality is still not granted, even in developed parts of Africa & even for travellers.

Harrie's Pancakes is a great place for pudding and coffee after a long day around Blyde River Canyon and such, I give it 8,5/10!

In many African countries a first course is not common, even in taverns and restaurants.

Abie's Pub & Grill was probably the best place we ate at Hazyview and its platters gave us the opportunity to have a feastful tasting course, I give it 8/10!

The Kruger Park canteen at Skukuza was definitely easier to spot than most of the wild animals!

The food was a pleasant surprise, especially considering the circumstances, I give it 7,5/10!

South African cuisine is renowned for its grilled meat!

@the_local_grill in Parktown was a very pleasant surprise, that exceeded every possible expectation one could have👌

The avocado beef burger was juicy and full of textures and flavours, the sirloin steak was one of the best I ever had and even their bread and butter was great, I give it 9/10!

I find it easy to appreciate food in many ways! Yet, if I did not, even one of the most developed African cities could enable me to do so.

Pata Pata is a great place to warm you up for South African cuisine if you just arrived in Johannesburg and are staying in Maboneng, I give it 7,5/10!

Their chilli sauce was spicy enough, had the right aromas and was well textured!

Krisilias offers perhaps the best cheese pie in Andros and one of the most interesting ones in Greece, I give it 9/10!

An all time classic early or late breakfast option in the town of Andros 😎

Kostas at Agias Irinis square offers one of the most interesting souvlaki in Athens, I give it 9/10!

I usually go for 1x meat on the stick and 1x burger (a.k.a. mpifteki) with the spicy pepper sauce 😎

It is almost impossible for me to have ice-cream at home, without adding flavour and texture contrast through various ingredients!

This hot weather calls for it! Doesn't it?

@mpar_mpee_kiou does offer an interesting selection of burgers and they all range from large to good for a family of four, I give it 8/10!

The house dip reminded me of the thousand island dressing and the beelzebul dip was as salty as pickle mix and not so spicy for my likes, so I haven't included those two in my rating! Instead, I did take into consideration the barbeque dip which was both tasty and well textured!

If you ever visit that place, you might want to go during off-peak days & hours, not in order to avoid the queue, but opting to wait for a little less, say 20 to 30 mins!

Lalibela in Kypseli was definitely something new and not adjusted to the Hellenic cuisine's flavours and such, I give it 8,5/10!

For about 2 hours it really felt like being somewhere far from Europe, so the Ethiopian experience is there!

That could of course change if more tourists and Greeks start to visit Lalibela frequently.

This is one of my typical breakfast options. I'd normally add whole cocoa beans I'd crush myself, but run out! Such things are proof you're looking at a real kitchen 🙂 I go with 1,5% fat fresh (good for 7 days or so) milk, always opting for the 1,5L Olympos bottle.

Perfect for the warm summer months👌 (keep in mind this delicious snack may not be as cheap or quick to make as it seems if you use high grade ingredients)

Making the best 'dwich in town in a 5M capital with a rich culinary history is no little accomplishment, I give Guarantee in Koukaki 9/10!

This place has some of the most interesting ingredients, no surprise it has been there since the late eighties.

I go with provolone, spicy salami, plenty of fresh basil (which I bring from home), and a range of antipasto: sauteed onion, peppers and aubergine, on a white thinned crumb ciabatta. Today I went relatively late and my first choice of bread wasn't available, so I went with a whole grain baguette.

You don't want to grill this 'dwich!
A glass of Syrah will make the perfect accompaniment for this one!

This is something you can take away and eat later since it hasn't been heated in any way, so Filopappou hill might be a great choice if you can spare some time!

This morning I had to be ridiculously early at work, so last night I enjoyed an interesting English breakfast.

Everything I've showed you up to date is my own. Chef Devaux of @makesushi1 was amazing enough to inspire me to try one of his own ideas.

Using various veg as cooking rings for eggs can be interesting, is easy and quick.

Put some love & patience (& thought of course) and you'll have a great execution too!

This morning I had to be ridiculously early at work, so last night I enjoyed an interesting English breakfast. Everything I've showed you up to date is my own. Chef Devaux of @makesushi1 was amazing enough to inspire me to try one of his own ideas. Using various veg as cooking rings for eggs can be interesting, is easy and quick. Put some love & patience (& thought of course) and you'll have a great execution too! #andreasfoood  #davydevaux  #andreasfakisfood  #thechef  #homemadefood  #simplemeals  #supereasymeals  #breakfast  #latebreakfast  #englishbreakfast  #organic  #eggs  #onion  #onionrongs  #egg  #bacon  #friedbread  #avocado  #weissbeer  #onion  #instalifo  #instachef  #homechef  #spring  #koukaki  #athens  #greece 
The first branch of Indian Chef in Neos Kosmos is one of the best Indian restaurants in Athens, I give it 8,5/10!

I've been there for a while and despite their well executed dishes, I couldn't help myself not noticing a rarity: the unpretentious decor, which both gives me a clue of what a restaurant in India could look & feel and reminds me of the UK, with Fuller's India Pale Ale and such on the menu which was nice.

If you go, you want to have chicken tikka, a grilled main course, as a starter!

This tasty & effortless dish consists of just 4 ingredients and it won't: A) Leave you starving. B) Blow off your monthly home food shopping budget. C) Make you cook again too soon (you can go for 6 portions if you have a baking tray that uses the available width and depth of your oven and isn't shallow!). I go for 5 to 6 pieces per portion and add just a little bit of olive oil for the veggies, as the wing of the chicken has the highest ratio of fat / meat, which contributes to its crunchy texture!

@hops_athens offers the best burger experience in Koukaki, I give it 7,5/10!

If you visit that place, you might want to make the most of its beer range.

Ariston was a great choice for a quick, small snack while running from one app to another in the centre.

I hear its cheesepie recipe dates back to the early 1900s and has been lightly altered a couple of times ever since, I give it 8/10!

@athensstreetfoodfestival hasn't created a tasting course yet, despite the physical limitations of one's time and appetite and the high number of participating food vendors. That, would of course require some effort and planning!

After closely inspecting all the food stalls, Monster Burgers, Aria's Street Food and DaVinci Gelato got our attention.

I give Monster Burgers 8/10 and DaVinci Gelato 8,5/10!

Note the conecuphat, my ingenious foodhack for stress and mess free gelato enjoyment without limiting textures and such!

Burger Joint has no queues and offers one of the best burgers in Athens, I give it 8,5/10!

I went for the "Mexican" adding an egg and an extra burger and besides plenty of weiss beer, accompanying with a BBQ dip and later some guacamole, in order to be able to finish off my extra burger.

That was a lot of food, glad I did not eat all the chips!

Oi Gynaikes at Gargareta offer perhaps the best souvlaki in the centre of Athens during dinner time, I give it 9/10!

I remember this place since the late '80s, when it was located across the street and had the form of a properly built canteen, standing in the place of the little park that exists today.

This place has no official name and since only women work in the kitchen (which is very rare when it comes to souvlaki) my father and I (and other reasonable people too most likely) have been calling it Oi Gynaikes all along.

This is the only place in Athens I go for gyros. I also go for bifteki and pork on the stick and add potatoes and spicy red pepper powder, altering the authentic recipe, yet having a greater balance!

One of the elements I like in food is history, what are we without it?

I wanted to have snails with garlic and parsley but wasn't willing to have a first and a second dish, nor to spend a good ammount of time on a starter.

This is my version of Bourguignonne Snails, an old fashioned recipe designed for a starter, which I turned into a main course by adding potato and rusk and reducing butter. It turned out to be a good plan!

Ice cream. It has its pros and cons, both when in a cup and when on a cone.

As a native problem solver, I've found a simple, yet (strangely) unseen way to retain the pros of the cone and the pros of the cap, without any of their cons, by altering the usual architecture of this divine, frozen pudding!

Since I came up with the conecuphat, I've forgotten all about dripping ice cream, plain ice cream, lack of textures and such. It is the best of both ice cream worlds!

Christine's beef soup was a great alternative to magiritsa, lighter too!

On top of that, easter eggs don't have to be boring, as long as you are willing to add a seasoning of your taste. For me, extra virgin olive oil, salt & pepper, mayo and pickled cucumber were good!

Ntakos is one of my favourite salads when it comes to the spring - summer period.

It is a dish that cannot leave one hungry, a full meal!

Amongst other ingredients I use plenty of fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil, yet besides great ingredients (as with everything we cook or make) proper mixing is key for this dish!

Petit fours with 1,5% fat real milk is not only my occasional afternoon tea alternative, but also a favoured breakfast.

Some promising bakeries like Takis just don't ever do them, others just stock them (so they buy mass produced petit fours that are not made with love) and some others make their own, which of course is the only way to go.

Alpa on Dimitrakopoulou & Zini in Koukaki make the best I've tried so far (amongst plenty) yet they don't make their own marmalade. I give them 8/10!

Falafellas is one of my (only) 3 favourite places in Athens when it comes to falafel.

One of the reasons is they go with the Israeli wrap version which includes aubergine.

Their ingredients were great as always but the wrap was not balanced at all this time. I give it 6,5/10, while its usual rating would be significantly higher and close to my top.

The queue has always been there, so it shouldn't affect quality.

I hope this was the first and the last time we're having an unbalanced wrap out of the blue.

Ambrosia at Syggrou Fix is perhaps the best superfast food option for lunch if you know what to ask for, I give it 8,5/10!

I go for pork on the stick on a pitta without oil and spicy cheese mash with tomato, fries with salt, tabasco and just a bit of onion.

My spec for this place results in a much different souvlaki, in terms of texture, taste and calories.

Such "details" make a big difference when ordering a souvlaki, a sandwich, a falafel, a wrap and anything of such a nature really, like a crepe or a toast!

Salmon is like duck. It has plenty of natural fat, so you really don't have to use any kind of oil (or fat) while cooking it (and if cooking it) as long as you have a plan to release its own on time!

I used greaseproof paper just below the salmon, in order to help its fat spread on the surface of the baking tray and soak the rest of my ingredients.

This is a light dish that cannot leave you starving!

Aubergine is one of my favourite ingredients and I like roasting as much as possible, despite the dish!

Shopping time & cost and cooking time & energy increase disproportionately when cooking larger quantities, so while the bill gets a little higher, it is actually a lot more economical to cook more portions, and not only in financial terms.

As long as you can resist and eat the amount you would if you had less of course!

O Kakias was a pleasant surprise. Everything was very fresh (or alive), a lot of the sea delicacies were raw and I had the chance to try Aphrodite Ouzo. I give it 9/10!

One of my favourite tasks in the kitchen is using fresh, cooked food remains in a genius way that can be mouthwatering.

This is how I decided to use what was left from a chicken roast for a quick snack before hitting the gym!

I may haven't lived in France for years as per the UK, but I've been a local there too!

Beef tournados are quiet popular in Paris and are definitely one of my favourite cuts.

A very slow side rolling while frying (before sauting both sides of the fillet) makes all the difference!

I like serving my eggs facing the bread, in which case is half fried, half toasted. This little detail enhances the whole eating experience when crushing the egg yolks!

My marinated pancetta with its kavourma, whiskey and apple barbecue sauce and its ember potatoes required some work but it was quiet amazing and full of textures!

One effortless but important step when the marinade is around halfway!

My pancetta will be ready to hit the grill in a couple of hours.

Now ready for this BBQ smoke Thursday with @dimispy @goodguyboris and @philip_mor!

Who said we can't marinade meat with meat?

My pancetta will rest for 24 hours in its marinade before hitting the grill. Its plentiful remains (including the tomato vine, rosemary and thyme twigs) will form the main ingredients of its barbecue sauce.

Ampakos offers one of the best burgers in Athens and there are no queues yet, I give it 8,5/10!

ps: Try not to use cutlery and tower up your burger

Peinirli Ionias is one of the few great places on Panormou and can be handy for a worthy snack when working on site.

This time I went for the vegeterian aubergine sandwich which included jalapenos. It was both tasty and interestingly textured, I give it 8,5/10!

Friday was a busy day but I managed to make a quick beef shank soup without documenting each major cooking step and the awesomeness of my ingredients before I wash, chop and cook them, as I regularly do.

The gradually dissolving marrow which is reserved in the bone adds  a great flavour and texture variety to this old fashioned dish!

Andaman is one of the few Thai places in Athens that offer almost the kind of food you find in Thailand, I give it 8,5/10!

Juicy Grill offers one of the best burgers in Athens, just go for medium done beef, I give it 8,5/10!

The corner shop on Vathi square can be ideal for a quick lunch when working on site.

I always go for the chicken wrap, adding aubergine and of course skipping mayo and garlic sauces as tahini and the spicy sauce are perfect, I give it 9/10!

A drunk chicken roast can be both tasty and handy if you want to prepare more than 4 portions at once.

I go for 6 well-balanced portions when roasting chicken. It may seem like a feast for a small army, yet I see it as 3 meals for 2 of us!

It is hard to quit afternoon tea, despite not being in Bedford. What a better alternative than apricot petit fours with 1,5% fat real-milk?

The chocolate hack increases flavour balance and offers THE petit four experience!

Places like Microulee can be handy for a quick, yet relaxed lunch when working on site.

The food-container hack made everything easier and the sweet and sour chicken noodles were pretty good, I'd say 8/10!
