We spent a day exploring the beautiful town of Paleochora and tasting some of the most amazing traditional greek food in Greece.

Cretan food is recognised around the world, and we wanted to experience it during our time here. Although Crete is located in the Mediterranean, Cretan food is more well known for lamb and meat rather than seafood.

If you are wondering what you should try on Crete, this video is perfect for you!


Galaktoboureko is an amazing Greek dessert. The best combination of crispy and soft. This age old Greek dessert is made of crispy phyllo sprinkled with melted butter, honey and cinnamon. Greeks use the most creamy custard & scented syrup to increase the taste of this food by many folds.

Dakos or ntakos is a Cretan meze consisting of a slice of soaked dried bread or barley rusk topped with chopped tomatoes and crumbled feta or mizithra cheese, and flavored with herbs such as dried oregano. Olives and pepper can also be added.

Kalitsounia pies is a carefully handmade pastry shaped into tiny cups and filled with a sweet cheese. The type of cheese vary depending on the region and can be either baked or fried and often sprinkled with cinnamon or sesame seeds.

Yemista: Yemista is a traditional recipe for Greek stuffed tomatoes that comes with vibrant colors and juicy flavors. Instead of tomatoes other vegetables are also used and baked until it turns to brownish color. The stuffing can either be with rice and various herbs or it may contain minced meat. There are countless variations of Yemista and you are allowed to experiment with different types of herbs & spices.

Dolmadakia: This is another sign of the versatile nature of Greek food. Dolmadakia are tiny dolmades that are made of stuffed grape leaves. Inside the leaf you will get meat of ground lamb or beef (sometimes both) and rice stuffing. Traditionally, this dish is served as appetizer with lemon wedges.

Raki: Originally developed as an alternative to absinthe, raki — its still potent cousin — is popular in Greece, Bosnia and other Balkan countries and is called the national drink of Turkey. Similar to Greek ouzo and Italian grappa, the nonsweet, usually aniseed-flavored spirit was originally produced from the solid residue of the grape — the skin, pulp, seed and stem — that remained after the fruit was pressed to make wine.

The town: Paleochora is a small town located 77 km south of Chania, at the southwest coastline of Crete and it’s built on a small peninsula of 400m width and 700m length. The town is set along 11 km of coastline bordering the Libyan Sea. Paleochora is built on the ruins of the ancient city of Kalamydi. It is the capital town of the municipality of Pelekanos and its population was 2213 in the 2001 census. Paleochora’s economy is based on tourism and agriculture (mainly tomatoes cultivated in glass houses and also olive oil). It is a relaxing holiday destination since the early 1970s when it was popular with hippies. Paleochora is currently one of the fastest growing tourist towns on Crete.

  1. Hey you delightful people! 😀 Thanks so much for watching. Don’t forget to hit the 'thumbs up' button if you enjoyed the video and hit SUBSCRIBE to follow along on our travels. There is so much more to come.


  2. Obrigada , por compartilhar belezas que vai do singelo , ao sofisticado. Vc é top . 😉😉

  3. Thank you for the great videos about Crete. We’ve been looking at videos of Crete all morning. While other videos are informative, your videos with the HD zoomed in videos of the food make your videos the most real for us.

  4. Thats yogurt guys. Originally is made from sheep's milk. And the bread in Dakos salad must be dry. Is bread rusks.

  5. awesome videos guys I was supose to be there now so i am living thew you ! Where in canada are you from I am in Canada as well

  6. Gemista goes REALLY well with oven cooked potatoes! I'm not a big fan of the Raki flavour, but the buzz you get after a few shots makes up for it. giamas!

  7. Raki, guys. It's a local spirit made from grapes… We have it everywhere in Greece and in different versions. That's a spirit to free your spirit!!!

  8. Yemista (stufed pepers+tomatoes with rice+herbs) is definatelly a greek traditional plate !!

  9. The Cypriot equivalent of raki or tsipouro is Zivania its red wine distilled in copper stills with the grape skins and seeds added to enhance the flavour, its double distilled to 40% ( and above in the villages) try this and you might end up in orbit around the moon.. PS before watching this DONT BE HUNGRY LOL

  10. It is always a delight to hear (and see!) reactions of either Northern Europeans or Americans when tasting Greek delicacies for the first time. It's almost as if they meet real flavor for the first time, almost! 😀

    Also, about the raki (pronounced ra-KEE, the accent on the last syllable), it is generally homemade in Crete so it can vary in strength and alcohol. Genrally, in the east, like Ierapetra and Hagios Nikolaos, it is not that strong, round about 50% alcohol. The more west you go the stronger it tends to get! 😉
    And don't forget the local Cretan saying:"Ilness that doesn;t go away with raki is BAD!"

  11. First of all I would like to thank you for visiting Greece for your holidays and making these nice videos about Greek food and Cretan food. On the other hand it is amazing how English spoken people literally destroy Greek names. Without any knowledge of what you are talking about and without asking for help by the locals, you say whatever is coming to you minds. In this video the first food you try is a desert called “Galaktoboureko” and not “siropiasto”. The sour cream you often mention on various plates is actually Greek yoghurt. The list goes on and on. Please try to have the correct information and the correct pronunciation of what you are presenting on your videos.

  12. You guys are awesome!!
    Thank you for visiting and promoting our food and our country!!
    God bless you both!!

  13. Raki is great when simmered with honey & cinnamon stick. You could compare Raki to moonshine. 😁

  14. Greece is amazing !! You should vizit also Macedonia and Thessaloniki, Meteora, Chalkidiki etc !!
