Holiday to Crete part 5: Food

Meze platter

We had a lot of good food on our holiday to Crete. A few times we decided to go for at Meze platter with loads of different nice item. Including the moussaka, the lamb kleftiko and the beef stifado. I also tried the local white and rose wine. It was very good with the food and it was perfect in the heat.

Lovely seafood resturant

Sometimes for breakfast and at lunch time I don’t have too big an appetite in the heat. But bread with olive tapenade, olive oil and olives are always tasty.

I always got to try some nice fish and calamari. The seafood was fresh and nice so close to the sea I usually try to taste some of it.

Sometimes life requires some sparklers in your ice cream

When you are on holiday it’s important to treat yourself to some nice ice cream. And a few of them came with sparklers and other nice decorations. I enjoyed it a lot except for when I accidentally touched one of the sparklers before it cooled down. Luckily I had some aloe vera in case of sun burns, and I only got a small blister.

One of many nice places to eat

There was also a lot of orange trees and the orange juice you got was fresh and nice.

I enjoy good food and drink and Crete was most definitively a good spot to visit for getting it. It was the icing on the cake on a lovely vacation.

  1. The food is always the best part. I loved finding ice cream with liqueur on it for dessert. Sparklers scare me a little as I have been burned by them too. When is your next holiday?

  2. The food – always a good reason to visit Greece!

  3. Oh, my gosh…the food looks sooooo delicious. You must have been in heaven! Thanks for sharing this glimpse 🙂

  4. We traveled to Crete this summer on a cruise. Unfortunately, we only had a few hours there and did not get to eat any food! From your pictures, it looks like we really missed out!
