οδός Αιόλου, brunch at mama roux

February 22, 2012

Oh we just love brunch!

Always wondered why there are so many diners run by Greeks  in the US and no place (or almost)  to have a late-breakfast-early-lunch here in Athens with eggs and burgers and french toast and pancakes and maple syrup butter and all..

Well, apparently an American thought the same and included such goodies  at his restaurant Mama Roux, which  apart from being a multi ethnic cool place to eat,  it’s brunching on Sundays. Check it out!

ΥΓ.  Αυτή η γειτονιά είναι στην καρδιά μας..το παρελθόν που κουβαλάει, οι ιστορίες που έχει να πει.. το Ξενοδοχείο Βύρων, με μια άλλη αίγλη, οι επισκέπτες του..τα σουλάτσα στην πλατεία, τα εμπορικά μικρομάγαζα.. και με τόσο εύθραυστη αρχιτεκτονική, απλή και γλυκειά, με λίγο κέντημα για ομορφιά..

Ψάχνοντας λίγο για το κτίριο, καταλήξαμε στο αρχείο του Εθνικού Ιδρύματος Ερευνών   εδώ..και στο ίδιο site  διαβάσαμε και την ιστορία του πολυαγαπημένου μας Αττικόν

…τι κρίμα..η πόλη μας έχει γεμίσει με πληγές..αλλά εξακολουθεί να είναι τόσο όμορφη ..

θέλουμε να την αγκαλιάσουμε και της δώσουμε ένα φιλί, να γιάνει…και να της ευχηθούμε καλή τύχη


Let love in, let love out: Avocado Food for Life restaurant

September 11, 2011

We wanted to visit this place since its opening in April and finally managed to go there last Saturday.. Avocado Food for Life vegan/vegetarian restaurant is at the heart of downtown Athens, at a really cute-old-Athens-neighborhood with small treasure shops,  international cuisine restaurants, more restaurants, more shops  and very close to Syntagma and Ermou buzz. 

Let’s drop in for a pitch stop!

Interior is decorated with warm relaxing colors. Green and wood combination makes it zuper-zen..

..with Siddhārtha Gautama for company

the menu is inspiring and kind of spiritual ;). It’s difficult to chose between  “Life’s a Rainbow”- Oh yes She is  , “Eat,Pray,Love ❤ and ” Om Shanti

let’s have a “Beautiful Day” Salad with (what else?) avocado, sprouts, micro-greens and sunflower seeds and some refreshing “Ginger Passion” juices…after all, we are ginger addicts!

(btw bread was delicious:)

plus an Abundance rice

tummies full, energy enhanced

Don’t miss this warm spot for refueling your body with delicious energizing super food and yummy smoothies full of vitamins:

and don’t forget to buy some organic goodies from the shop next door

…also, don’t forget these words of wisdom



PS. Knock-knock,no luck.. we have to come back here for the next post:) see you soon!


La Petite Cuisine a Paris

March 5, 2011

That’s what happens when a girl with inspiration and resourcefulness combines the love for food with the city of gastronomy, Paris.

Rachel Khoo is the Cook.

After studying Art & Design at Central Saint Martins, her passion for pâtisserie lured her to Paris, where she studied at Le Cordon Bleu.

Four years later… there is a small kitchen.

Ok, not any innovation in that. The innovation is that she opens up this cute little kitchen for a delightful three course lunch for two! As Rachel says, she’s like the culinary version of Carrie Bradshaw, where clothes, shoes and handbags have been replaced with kitchen gadgets, cookbooks and other culinary knick knacks. So, those fortunate amongst you, who are planning a visit to beloved Paris, drop an email to Rachel, if you fancy a unique, dining-at-a-Parisian-apartment experience, and savour something like…

this… Gratin Dauphinois with a fresh herb salad,

together with… this… Poached egg with ratatouille,

and -Omigod- this… Apple and vanilla soufflé.

Served with a bottle of La Grange de quatre sous, Cuvée Garsinde 2009

Bon appétit, chéris!
