Traditional meal at the Acropolis Museum’s restaurant

Thousands of tourists visit the famous Acropolis museum, which is today considered to be one of the world’s brightest museums.

It is definitely worth it spending a day to visit Acropolis.  There are great tour packages even for the whole family and or young people. We suggest you paying a visit at the Museum’s restaurant so that you can enjoy authentic Greek tastes while gazing at the Acropolis … an absolute experience.

If you want to visit the Museum on Friday, you would enjoy a dinner with fine dishes at the restaurant, drinks and jazz music until midnight. Perhaps it’d be a great idea if the music was ancient Greek…

However, it is very nice to include Greek PDO products in the restaurant menu because it gives special emphasis on the rich variety provided by Greek lands.

 

We give you the phone number to be sure that after your cultural walk in the Museum, you will enjoy Acropolis lights by night, with a glass of fine Greek wine.

The phone number for reservations is (+30) 210 9000915, on the days and hours of operation of the Museum.

We really enjoyed the traditional Lemon Calf there and we share the recipe with you.

 

Traditional Calf with mashed potato

Steps

1
Done

In a large saucepan sauté in olive oil the calf and add the onion. Let it sauté until the onions become transparent, then dd the garlic and leave for 2 more minutes.

2
Done
3 minutes

With the tweezer, we turn the calf to both sides. We deglaze with wine and wait for the alcohol to evaporate for 3 minutes.

3
Done
60-90 '

Add hot vegetable broth until it covers the meat, and simmer in a covered pot 60-90 minutes.

4
Done

We prepare the pota

5
Done
20 '

In a saucepan, add water and add the potatoes. Once the water starts to boil, add the salt and simmer for 20 minutes until the potatoes soften. If needed let them boil a bit more.

6
Done

For the potato mash

Use a masher and then add as much olive oil as we want to get a velvety texture.

7
Done

To have a beautiful dish

We need to use a bag of pastry to place the potato mash on the dish in the shape we want.

8
Done

Once the calf is ready and soft, 5 minutes before dropping the calf off the fire, shower it with the lemon juice and let it mix.

9
Done

Top with freshly ground peppers and serve the pieces of the calf with the sauce next to the potato mash.

10
Done

Our meal will be even more delightful if we accompanied it with the same wine used to cook it. Besides, this is a trend in gastronomy, so as to have best combination of flavours.
