I am SO glad this restaurant was recommended to me. I feel like it’s one of the best kept secrets in Athens although it’s not-so-secret seeing that it just received it’s first Michelin Star. Funky Gourmet is owned and run by Nick Roussos, Georgianna Hiliadaki and Argyro Hiliadaki, the first two mentioned being the head chefs. Both were in the house the night we ate there.
The whole meal was absolutely incredible! So fun and playful…it was enjoyable from start to finish. Favorites for me included the “picnic”, pesto pasta that we got to make and cook ourselves (not really but I love that they let you think you’re doing it:)), and Greek Salad sorbet – that was nuts! I was hesitant to try the foie gras truffle (simply because I don’t care for the taste of fg) but I was pleasantly surprised. It truly tasted like a chocolate truffle!
At the end of the meal I have to say, I was shockingly NOT stuffed but 100% satisfied. If you’re in Athens be sure to check this place out. It’s a special experience that you’ll never forget. Hats off to the chefs!
