All about the products and tastes of Mykonos!

Establishing itself as a gastronomic destination over the last years, a series of initiatives are happening in Mykonos to promote and familiarize the visitors of the island with the culinary heritage of the island.  In today’s blog post, we are taking a closer look to Mykonos products with our very own suggestion of where you will try and enjoy these delicious treats on an island made not only for partying.

The main products of Mykonos are the cheese called “kopanisti”, a spicy goat cheese that is perfect to have instead of a regular cheese in your breakfast or as a mid- day appetizer. The “louza” is a sausage made of pork with the addition of spices and pepper which is necessary to every real Mykonian lunch. Another delicious cheese made in Mykonos is tyrovolia with milder taste than kopanisti. As for a sweet bite, the amigdalota (made with almond and rose water) are the light desserts that you definitely have to taste. The seafood, of course, is the main “ingredient” of a traditional Mykonian dish where vegetables and meat play a significant part to the creation of the dishes.

If all the above made you hungry then in the main restaurant of Ftelia Bay Boutique Hotel you will enjoy at the breakfast buffet the characteristic products of Mykonos where the dinner menu suggests a creative and innovative series of dishes to enjoy the real taste of Mykonos that you will want to repeat as long as you are staying in Mykonos! Enjoy!
