Far from the typical touristic taverns that attract tourists and rarely offer good food, I was happy to try this one. Located in a small village outside Xanthi called Peteinos, it is quite difficult to know it unless a local suggests it (the small tavern is called Folia tou peteinou (Φωλιά του πετεινού) or Rooster’s nest).
Weird and unusual dishes formed a very popular menu for those people who want to try harder to find a different and better alternative choice of a restaurant. Below you will see my usual choice (nothing special but perfect for me) and a small dish which was bread stuffed with feta and covered by honey. We also chose semi-sweet wine. Very popular dish though, suggested by many MANY friends, was the ‘Nihi tou kokora’ (Rooster’s claw or Νύχι του κόκκορα). Do not be intimidated by the names, that is not what you will eat! 😀
Happy holidays and positive thinking!
