Quick Pitta (Athens, Greece)
Mitropoleos 55, Athens 10556, Greece, T: 21-0321-1000
Quick Pitta is a modern restaurant that serves traditional Greek meat dishes like Gyros and Souvlaki as both sandwiches and plates. Situated in the heart of the touristic Plaka district, it caters to tourists, but tonight there are almost only Athenians.
I get a Pita Gyros of pork and a side of fries. With a soda it only costs €6, which is very reasonable, particularly given the location. The pita is wheat and has a strong taste, unlike the fairly limited and very thin shaved meat. It comes traditional: no fries, no ketchup, no mustard. The fries are thick and very potato-y, although they are probably from McCain, who seems to have a monopoly on fries in Greece. They are too soft and dry.
Definitely not a tourist trap, but also not remarkable.
