not to miss HOTSPOT IN THESSALONIKI’S trendy district VALAORITOU
The district Valaoritou is not only known by the amount of street art that you can find there. This district bursts of the amount of nice restaurants and bars. Especially at the end of the day and in the evening the district is fully alive. In a side street of Valaoritou Street are various narrow streets with many nice hotspots. Elia Lemoni (in English also called Olive Lemon) is a modern Greek tavern with a nice terrace which shouldn’t miss in this Thessaloniki City Guide. Inside the big olive tree is the eye-catcher of the colourful interior.
menu x Elia Lemoni Thessaloniki
On the menu at Elia Lemoni in Thessaloniki (aka Olive Lemon) you will find authentic Greek cuisine with a modern twist. Think of mezze to share, but the real signature dish is the casserole of pork or meat from the spit. I find Elia Lemoni a nice address to go to at the end of the day to have a drink and then to linger until late at night. You can then do some bar hopping from bar to bar and share some tasty mezze to try out all the spots in the area, such as Coq Au Zen and Gaspard Wine Bar.
