Typical food and drink in Greece
Food in Greece is served rustically and often is meant to be shared. Sharing platters or ordering many small plates, tapas style, is typical. The cooking is simple, often based on a tomato sauce and flavoured with local ingredients and olive oils. Meats are mostly chargrilled. Alcohol tends to be strong spirits in Greece. From aniseed-flavoured ouzo to a distilled grape concoction known as rakija, the taste is strong and very alcoholic.
