Food and Drink in Rhodes
Most restaurants on the island feature pitaroudia on their menus. The dish is a fritter filled with an exciting burst of flavours in a mixture of chickpeas, potatoes, onions and fresh mint. A tasty way of eating this is to order it hot and dunk the food into a saucer of cool tzatziki, the dip then melts and smothers the fritter giving it extra flavour. This certainly is something that should be tried during your trip!
For those with a sweet tooth, you certainly can eat your cake and have it too. Rhodes is an island which does not disappoint and will tend to your sugary cravings in the form of talagoutes – picture this, a stack of fluffy pancakes, swimming in sticky honey and a sweet cinnamon sauce, topped with crunchy chopped walnuts and sesame seeds. Are we in America you say? Of course not! We’ll have seconds please!
Any meal isn’t complete without washing it down with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or maybe a glass or two of wine. Boasting over 7,500 acres of land dedicated to juicy grapes and wine production – we think it’s fair to say wine industry is very important here. The best-known wineries on the island are Cair and Emery where the grapes used include an aromatic green variety called Athiri and a red grape called Mandilaria – catering to those with both a sweet and bitter preference.
For those keen on dancing their way into the night or after somewhere to enjoy the nightlife this magnificent island has to offer, Faliraki will not disappoint. It’s often referred to as Greece’s answer to Ibiza, or maybe the Kavos of Rhodes – this bustling resort offers just about anything groups or young holidaymakers could want from a holiday. If Faliraki is a bit on the wild side for you, you’ll find a number of venues in all resorts which host discos, Greek dances and a chilled place to unwind after a busy day.
