Eats in Greece. Pt 4: Mousakka



The mousakka is like an eggplant lasagna (!). It’s layers of ground meat and slices of eggplant topped with cheese. To be honest, I’m allergic to eggplant and my husband wasn’t too eager to try it either, so I can’t really say how good it is. I even asked if the dish could be replicated by replacing the eggplant with something else (like potato; I’d read somewhere that sometimes potato is used instead of eggplant), but it was always negatory 😦

Everywhere we went though, this dish was the very first recommendation, so I guess it’s a pretty big deal there. Start with the saganaki for an appetizer, and follow up with mousakka.


Restaurants large and small – in Greece. (NOT at every street corner shack though, unlike the gyro or souvlaki).

How much:

About 8-25 EUR depending on how fancy a place you fancy!
