I never say no to a short (or long) trip to Athens. There are so many things you can do there all year around.
Museums, art exhibitions, flea markets, shopping, theatre, concerts, clubbing, eating….. and the list goes on and on. You are never bored in Athens. I, personally have another reason why I enjoy Athens so much. My dearest friend and blogger Marie of www.mosaic.gr lives there. We don’t see each other very often so for me Athens means catching up with my friend. She is always “au courant” with what’s on; new restaurants, new places, events etc. After reading one of her latest posts on her Blog about this relatively new restaurant in Piraeus: “Hams and Clams” I couldn’t but make her take us there on our last visit to Athens, last week. Read her review below and whenever you are in Athens don’t miss this lovely cute place.
Thanks Marie for your tips!
Back to the city: Hams & Clams at Piraeus
Hams & Clams has been a relatively recent discovery for me. Always looking for places that suggest something new and offer a good balance of value versus prices. So, good food and drinks, decent service, pleasant environment, down to earth pricing. I first tried it with a dear friend and have returned a few times since with different groups. Everybody liked it. So, I can now write about it!
The place opened about two years ago as the business venture of four friends after the test a Corks & Forks, a wine pub. Their motto is to “make people happy through food”… I guess they mean through drinks as well… All sitting consists of high tables and stools, inside. It is advisable to make advance reservations as it is a small place and gets easily full.
You could also call the place and Oyster Bar. It is inspired by Andalusian family restaurants and you can enjoy seafood, as well as a variety of excellent quality jamon, wines & cocktails. The menu is not too long, generally a good sign. They also offer daily dishes, according to what is available on the market.
Great music by the way!
