If you had to choose the factors that make a place interesting to travel to, what would you pick? Let us guess: rich culture, beautiful landscapes, great food and a couple more. If we guessed right, listen to our advice and put Greece on your travel destination list.

This Mediterranean gem has everything you could possibly want from a travel experience. One of those things is the food, which manages to be healthy and incredibly tasty at the same time.

Once you try the entrees and main courses, make sure you leave room for dessert. Whatever you choose, you won’t go wrong. Greek desserts are famous for being so tasty, you’ll come back to Greece just to have some more!

Here’s a list of some of the most delicious ones you should try. The unique specialties vary from street food classics to restaurant delicacies. If you’re hungry, proceed with caution!

Traditional Greek Desserts You Have To Try

Greek Kataifi

At first glance, this might remind you of thin ramen noodles. But, we promise, kataifi is so much better than that and it won’t disappoint you!

This unique dessert is made with a specific shredded dough and then topped with an aromatic syrup. You will recognize lemony notes and cinnamon in the syrup and the fresh butter on top of the dough.

The center is filled with finely chopped nuts – either almonds and walnuts or pistachios. It’s perfect if you’re in the mood for something crunchy and sweet!

Greek Kataifi is a perfect representation of typical Greek desserts. It is rich and very sweet, but, most of all, unlike anything you’ve ever tried before!

Bougatsa

If you ask any Greek man or woman what’s the best breakfast food, they will recommend bougatsa. This flaky pastry is a real Greek treasure and it can be found pretty much everywhere you go!

Whether you like a sweet or savory breakfast, bougatsa is a perfect option. But the sweet one is more famous and, in our opinion, much more flavorful. Have in mind that you don’t have to eat it for breakfast only, but as a dessert as well!

It is made of thin phyllo dough which is filled with rich, creamy custard. The heavenly aroma also comes from the cinnamon, which is traditionally sprinkled on top. Make sure you have it fresh and hot, so you could taste the butteriness!

Bougatsa is guaranteed to top your list of best sweet pastries and, possibly, best Greek desserts. Just think of it this way: being able to have dessert for breakfast is what life is all about!

Baklava

On some days, there’s just nothing better than an old-fashioned baklava. It exudes a certain warm and homey feeling, especially if it’s authentic. If you’d like to try one made from someone’s grandma’s recipe, you should definitely try it in Greece!

The basic version of this well-known dessert is made with layers of thin phyllo and filled with ground walnuts. It is then drenched in sugar syrup, which gets completely absorbed.

There are many different variations of it that you should try. Some include raisins along with walnuts, while others are made with ground pistachios. If you’re a lover of all nuts, you could try one with a combination of a few of them. Also, don’t miss the baklava with rose water!

In Greece, baklava is usually made for special occasions and events. But, isn’t being in Greece special enough? Tuck in!

Halva

Not to be confused with the Turkish sweet with the same name, Greek halva is a type of pudding. It’s traditionally made with semolina flour and only a couple more ingredients. If you’re vegan, you’ll be happy to know you can eat as much of this dessert as you wish!

If you’d like to try to make a Greek dessert at home, this is the one to start with. It is delicious, but also very simple to create.

Halva contains one of the best Greek products – olive oil. It is incredibly tasty but also rather healthy at the same time.

Sometimes, beauty really lies in simplicity. With only a few ingredients, halva is without a doubt one of the best traditional Greek desserts!

Melomakarona

Just like everywhere else in the world, the Greeks love celebrating holidays with traditional treats. That’s why every year for Christmas, Greek families make melomakarona – Greek Christmas cookies!

These wonderful, crunchy cookies are very refreshing and rich. Besides the usual Christmas ingredients like cinnamon or nutmeg, they also contain cognac and orange zest. Yum!

Even if you’re not in Greece during the holidays, you must try melomakarona. They’re a perfect treat alongside a cup of coffee or tea!

Loukoumades

Loukoumades are another street food classic. Everyone who grew up in Greece has memories of eating these during their childhood. If you’re a lover of doughnuts and fried food in general, don’t look any further!

You must try these little balls of dough, deep fried and dipped in honey or chocolate sauce. You can ask for some cinnamon or walnuts on top, for an extra bit of flavor!

Although nowadays these are commonly served on festivals and markets, they have been around long before those came to existence. Believe it or not, even ancient Greek writers mentioned them in their work!

While you’re in Greece, make sure you eat them as often as possible. You can find them on every corner, so try and find your favorite ones! Why not spoil yourself a bit?

Portokalopita (Orange cake)

If you’re looking for a perfect summer dessert, this is it. Portokalopita combines two things Greece is known for – Greek yogurt and fresh oranges.

Originally, this Greek dessert comes from the island of Crete, and only one bite will transport you there. This moist cake is, like many Greek desserts, finished with a soaking syrup and a bit of cinnamon.

When you bite into it, you’ll be overwhelmed with the creaminess of the yogurt and the crisp orange taste. The ingredients are combined flawlessly and are even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

12 Irish Desserts You Must Try

Whether you want to make a dessert for St. Patrick’s day or to satisfy your sweet tooth, here’s a list of Irish desserts you must try.

Some of them are easy to make from the comfort of your home but if you don’t prefer that, hit up cozy Irish cafes.

Carrageen Moss Pudding

Carrageen Moss is a type of red algae which can be found at the shores of Ireland. This seaweed has numerous health benefits – it’s rich in vitamins and minerals such as iodine, magnesium, and potassium.

It found its way in the Irish cuisine as well. Carrageen Moss is first soaked in warm water and then simmered with the milk (it can be any milk of your choice). The mixture is then usually flavored with orange juice and served as a dessert.

Here’s an interesting recipe for carrageen moss pudding.

Irish Whiskey Truffles

This is a great dessert for the whiskey connoisseurs and chocolate lovers. The recipe usually includes Jameson and the truffles are easy to prepare.

The cream is first heated then stirred with Jameson whiskey.

This is a cool dessert for St. Patrick’s day. Here’s a recipe with the detailed explanations.

Porter Cake

This is a delicious cake that uses Porter such as Guinness or Beamish as an ingredient. It can be prepared in less than two hours and it’s ideal for those who love fruit.

Yes, this cake is a solid mix of dark beer and dried fruit. Typically Irish.

It’s recommended to leave this cake for a day or two before slicing it, but if you have zero patience, no one can blame you for trying it immediately!

Lemon Curd Sponge Cake

If you’re a fan of light desserts, this is a cake you absolutely have to try when in Ireland. It goes very well with the afternoon tea.

All it takes is a 45 min of preparation and 15 min of cooking.

You can check the full guidelines here.

Barmbrack

Barmbrack is a yeasted bread with raisins and sultanas. Just like the Lemon Curd Sponge Cake, this one is also a popular afternoon dessert served with tea.

It’s very popular during Halloween when various objects are baked into the bread and then used to predict the future.

Tradition tells that those who find the ring will get married within the year, while silver coin means a good fortune.

Irish Coffee

Irish coffee is famous worldwide, for its interesting mix of coffee, whiskey, sugar, and cream. It was created in 1943 by Joe Sheridan in Limerick.

It’s not that complex to prepare, so if you want to try it in the comfort of your home, check out this recipe.

Irish Apple Cake

This is another very popular cake for the St. Patrick’s day. For those who don’t like overly sweet cakes, this will be an ideal choice for the dessert. Irish cake is often eaten with the custard sauce, which gives it an even better texture and taste.

Guinness Cake

This surely isn’t your everyday cake, but its interesting mixture is what makes it so special. The Guinness stout gives it an intensive flavor and the cake usually has a creamy white chocolate as a topping.

Baileys Brownies

If you love Baileys (and brownies!) this is a combination you simply have to try. The recipe isn’t difficult to prepare yourself, but it does take some time. Here’s a great article which explains the process in detail.

Mudslike Cheesecake

This cheesecake is a great combination of cookies, mascarpone cheese, and Irish cream liquor. In case you want to make it yourself, you can get sandwich cookies such as Oreo. All you need is a blender and some patience.

Irish Lemon Pudding

This is a famous St. Patrick’s dessert, which surprisingly isn’t green colored! It’s a fantastic mix of creamy sweetness and lemony tartness. The bottom part of the cake is creamy while the top has a dense layer.

Irish Potato Candy

Irish potato candy is a famous dessert in the Philadelphia area, during St. Patrick’s day. Just note that the commercial versions of the candy do not contain potato at all. It is generally made with a coconut cream and it is rolled in cinnamon on the outside.

However, a homemade version can be made with real potato which is usually mashed and doesn’t have any additional liquids.

The Best Scottish Food: 7 Must-Try Dishes

Since it has a reputation of being very peculiar, Scottish food is severely underrated. The common misconception is that the traditional dishes are hard to get used to if you’re a foreigner.

In reality, people in Scotland have created an authentic and exciting cuisine that should be experienced by every foodie. They have combined old traditional dishes with some more modern influences and it resulted in incredibly tasty food.

With a variety of different flavors, coming both from meat and vegan ingredients, it is suitable for absolutely everyone. Don’t forget about the desserts either!

Here’s a list of some of our top picks when it comes to Scottish food. The unique dishes made from fresh, local produce are a gastronomical adventure you must have in your lifetime!

The Best Scottish Food – 7 Must-Try Dishes

Haggis

This dish always tops the lists of Scottish specialties. The one and only, unmissable haggis is synonymous with Scottish food and tradition.

This well-known delicacy is described as a meat pudding or a crumbly sausage. Even though it doesn’t look very appealing, the rich texture and flavor of haggis are its main traits.

It is made with minced sheep’s pluck, onions, oatmeal and spices as basic ingredients. Everyone adds a personal touch or a secret spice that makes it different, but it usually has a peppery taste. That mixture is then traditionally prepared inside the sheep’s stomach.

To paint the picture of how much Scots love haggis, take the example of their national poet Robert Burns. He loved haggis so much, that he wrote a poem dedicated to it called Address to a Haggis. Now, every year, Scots celebrate him and their national dish in one event called the Burns dinner.

This is something you must try if you want to feel like a true Scot for a moment. Also, if a dish inspired poetry, it must be something special!

Scotch Pie

If you’re a fan of pies, especially pot pies, this specialty is something you must try. The Scots make one of the world’s most delicious pies, made with mutton meat, nutmeg and gravy.

Scotch pie is typical Scottish fast food. Don’t be surprised if you hear people calling it football pie, since it’s often eaten during half-times of football matches. They are served alongside a drink called bovril – a beef extract diluted with hot water.

If you’d like to try the absolute best Scotch pies, visit The Piemaker in Edinburgh. They even have something called the Scotch Haggis pie!

The Scots take their food pretty seriously, so, naturally, there are competitions involved. Each year, the Scotch Pie Club hosts something called the World Scotch Pie Championship. Keep an eye on the list of winners and try some of the best ones!

Cranachan

Here’s a little something to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth. Cranachan is Scotland’s traditional dessert, which contains one of everyone’s favorite Scottish exports – whiskey!

The word pudding in Scotland could have a different meaning than what you’re usually used to. However, in this case, we’re talking about a real, sweet, creamy pudding, but made special by authentic ingredients.

Even though it’s rather easy to make, Scots argue that you just can’t make real cranachan in another country. The raspberries aren’t as fresh, the quality of oats is incomparable and Scottish heather honey is far from regular honey.

Pretty much any restaurant serving traditional Scottish food also has good cranachan. So, if you’re in the mood for something simple, but tasty and refreshing, you know what to order!

Salmon

Even though the Scots didn’t invent salmon, this fish is Scotland’s biggest food export. You can be sure that the salmon you eat in Scotland is not imported, but fresh and local.

Scottish Wild Salmon has been designated Protected Geographical Indication. That means that the EU picked it as an extraordinary product and is making sure it’s produced in a certain way.

Luckily for all fish lovers, Scotland is full of amazing seafood restaurants. If you’d like to take some home, supermarkets in Scotland have amazing smoked salmon, which is just as good!

Cullen Skink

This dish is perfect for those cold winter months, since it’s essentially a creamy soup. It is bound to brighten up any glum chilly day and remind you of a nice home cooked meal. 

Cullen skink is made with smoked haddock, potatoes and milk and seasoned with a unique blend of spices. It has an unforgettable smoky flavor while the potatoes add some softness to the dish. If you’ve ever tried clam chowder and loved it, this will win you over as well.

Like we mentioned before, the Scots are famous for their amazing fish. This dish will satisfy all your senses and give you that nostalgic feeling of grandma’s home!

Shortbread

This buttery biscuit is an ideal snack alongside a hot cup of tea. It is a classic when it comes to Scottish food and it has been the most popular biscuit for centuries. It is associated with Christmas and Hogmanay (day before the New Year), but it can be enjoyed all year round!

Even though it’s very easy to find nowadays, shortbread used to be a luxury. They were only given as Christmas presents or, if you’re a new bride, they would break one over your head!

This Scottish dessert is easy to make, so if you’re into baking, you’re in luck. The crumbly  biscuits were once described as “the jewel in the crown of Scottish baking”. Even though the basic ones are only made with butter, sugar and flour, they’re mouth-watering!

Those who aren’t bakers can get these at souvenir shops and supermarkets. If you’d like to try the best there is, go for the Walkers Shortbread!

Sticky Toffee Pudding

It tastes just as good as it sounds! Once again, this isn’t what most people would recognize as a pudding, but Scottish cuisine has its own rules.

This delicious dessert consists of a moist sponge cake, dates and toffee sauce. It is served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, which only brings out the toffee more.

The pudding can be found in most pubs and restaurants, since it’s a staple comfort dish. There’s a reason why this dessert is loved by everyone who tries it, so give it a taste!

A Guide to Must-Try Brews and Breweries in Munich

Every year in Munich, Oktoberfest draws in millions of tourists to the city for a 16-day celebration. Although it’s known as a beer festival to many, Oktoberfest is actually a celebration of Bavarian culture – with music, amusement rides, parades, and select breweries thrown into the festivities.

It’s been a national tradition since the early 1800s, which is why it’s somewhat controversial to say that Oktoberfest is not the only place and time to score some choice Bavarian brews.

But even though it’s an unpopular opinion, it has to be said: there are tons of other places in Munich and Germany where you can sample the best that Bavaria has to offer.

Must-Try Brews and Breweries in Munich

Tap House

The sheer variety of the over 200 different craft beers that Tap House carries is a testament to German efficiency. Ales, top-fermented beers, barrel-conditioned brews, stouts, porters, and other brews by local makers await in this Munich craft beer paradise.

Every connoisseur who’s been to Tap House will likely have a different answer to the question of which particular beer is their favorite due to this place’s vast variety and high quality of beers.

If you’re unsure of where to start — chili con beer is recommended by many regulars.

Weisses Brauhaus

In 1872, Weisses Brauhaus founder Georg Schneider was the first person to be awarded by King Ludwig II of Bavaria the privilege of brewing wheat beer. To this day, the Schneider family still owns and manages Weisses Brauhaus, and you can sample their same founding wheat beer recipe from 1872 under the name Schneider Weisse Original.

This was later renamed to Tap 7 My Original to draw attention to the brewery’s now varied selection, including Tap 6 My Aventinus (Bavaria’s first double wheat dough), and Aventinus Edelbrand, a beer that’s reportedly 42% alcohol.

Overall, Weisses Brauhaus is a medium-sized craft brewery to rival the Bavarian wheat beer giants.

Crew Republic

Few brewers actually have the gall to go against the traditional and legal definitions of what is actually considered beer in Germany. The bearded, tattooed founders of Crew Republic are part of that few.

With their motto of “Craft Beer is Not a Crime,” this pioneering craft brewery is responsible for a range of beer that valiantly go against Bavarian brewing traditions. Their pale ale, Foundation 11, is a definite standout.

Szene Drink

Don’t be fooled by this location’s convenience store look. Inside, you’ll find quite an impressive selection of bottled craft beer from all over Munich and the world. If you’re planning to bring some beers home, this is the place to go.

If you have any questions about the craft beers that they have in stock, don’t hesitate to ask the friendly staff as they are quite knowledgeable and friendly to anyone who’s willing to learn a thing or two about beer.

CREW AleWerkstatt

With this beer house’s selection of IPAs, double IPAs, and imperial stouts, it’s clear that it’s taking inspiration from the many American microbreweries that have been springing up lately. If they’re available, the 7:45 Escalation Imperial IPA and Roundhouse Kick Imperial Russian stout are definitely worth a try. Along with Crew Republic, CREW AleWerkstatt is intent on breaking the traditions of Munich wheat beer and taking it to delicious new heights.

These are a few of the many independent, small, and medium-sized breweries pushing the definition of beer in a place that’s largely known for traditional brews.

Bavaria is globally famous as a place where you can sample the greatest beers in the world. And while these craft breweries are challenging centuries-old brewing traditions, they’re also pushing all of Bavaria into a new age of taste. Check our post on some Bavarian dishes you have to try.

Bavaria’s traditional wheat beers are already famous enough through the efforts of its largest breweries along with the annual tradition of Oktoberfest, arguably one of the most publicized events in the world. In fact, apart from the live event itself, beer enthusiasts can also enjoy the excitement of Oktoberfest online.

Bier Haus, an Oktoberfest-themed title featured among FoxyBingo’s extensive library of games, is a tribute to the rich beer culture of Germany. Apart from the wheat beer itself, this game features images of the traditional dirndl and lederhosen in colorful and modern illustrations to attract newer audiences.

It’s just one of the various ways in which Oktoberfest – and Bavaria’s traditional beer culture – are being promoted right now. In other words, there’s no doubt that the world has already heard of Bavaria’s traditional wheat beers.

It’s time for the world to take notice of Bavaria’s newer small and medium breweries. If anyone can take traditional beer making methods to the next level, it’s the next generation of Bavaria’s craft beer makers.

Bitemojo Food Tour – Step Into Prenzlauer Berg Neighbourhood

There are many approaches to experiencing a city – and no wrong ones! Places are like people, they have many layers to them. The surface of the city doesn’t paint…

There are many approaches to experiencing a city – and no wrong ones!

Places are like people, they have many layers to them. The surface of the city doesn’t paint an accurate portrait of its persona. There are cities that I thought I’d enjoy immensely for their architecture or interesting history. However seeing them in person, they fell flat. Likewise there are also cities that are deemed ugly or boring but once you get to know the culture, the secret spots, the people, suddenly you’re in tune with the city’s newfound vibrancy.

One of the cities that keeps calling to me is definitively Berlin. Our affair started a year ago. I first visited Berlin in October, 2016. Like all first comers I ticked off all major touristy sights. I visited some of the finest museums Berlin had to offer (and they have a lot to offer – over 10 museums)! I got to hang out with Berliners in Kreuzberg, do beer yoga (it’s fun as it sounds), try tasty German brews and dance the night away in Berghain. Like most cities it was only scratching the surface.

The second time I visited was exactly a year later, October 2017. Through my conversations with the locals (their English is impeccable by the way) I found out what I was missing out on! Food!

Yes, I tried everything that street carts have to offer! Donner, currywurst and to be fair, ten other types of wurst. Much as I enjoy street food, I decided that I need to expand my menu.

One of the things that makes Berlin such a great city is that it’s so culturally diverse. So I wanted to experience that diversity through my favourite medium, food.

I’ve been told that Prenzlauer Berg has a serious food scene.

PB neighbourhood, I was told that it’s like Kreuzberg but for young families (also former residents of Kreuzberg). Due to being a much gentrified district and as such, a perfect scene for a cafés & eateries. It’s a big mix of scenery. From colourful boutiques, green oases, interesting shops, a JR mural (and other great examples of street art) to a wide range of eateries.

Hence I booked a food tour through an app called Bitemojo. I never did a tour through an app so I was curious how the whole process would look like.

The only thing you need for this tour is an empty stomach and a smartphone! The tour costs 25 euros, and for that price you get 6 delicious bites & 6 hidden gems of Prenzlauer Berg.

How Does Bitemojo Food Tour Work:

  1. Download the Bitemojo app
  2. Choose a Tour to Your Fitting
  3. See at what time the tour is available
  4. Get to the starting point and enjoy!

Prenzlauer delivered. The tour took me to six different restaurants all specializing in different types of cuisine.

Ataya

bitemojo food tour

First one was a small restaurant offering some of the best vegetarian/vegan cuisine in Berlin. The owners are a lovely couple from different cultural background. She is from Cagliari, Italy and he is from Dakar, Senegal. As a result, the food they create is a harmonious fusion of influences from both continents.

My first bite was ravioli! A perfect example of the African-Italian fusion. The recipe was inspired by the cuisine of Sardinia (as their tomato sauce), but the couscous is Senegalese. From dough to the sauce – everything is homemade!

Pasticceria Mangiarte

bitemojo food tour

Next stop was my favorite, Pasticceria Mangiarte. The owner Ivan hails from Taranto, Italy. He’s a baker and a painter – and I certainly agree, that his pastries are masterpieces. I had a bigne with Chantilly cream and an espresso to accompany it with. The Chantilly cream melted in my mouth.

bitemojo food tour

I had to order some other delicacies and I tried some type of delectable pastry with passion fruit. It was divine, a truly religious experience. The prices are really reasonable (a piece was 1 euro!) and everything, and I mean everything is homemade. Every batter, filling, glaze and cream!

The Panini Shop

the Panini Shop

Another business owned by a married couple! A panini shop, the only store in Berlin that specializes in paninis only! Next to classic Italian paninis they offer their own recipes too.

I had their Sweet Chicken on sesame bread and some orange juice. The bread was evenly toasted, the salad was crunchy and not soggy from the sauce (which I hate when happens with paninis) and chicken was perfect. It was delicious. My friend had the Burger panini which was even better. Their menu offers a really nice selection, and for dessert you can get some cookies too.

Neue Liebe

Neue Liebe cafe

I finished the tour at a cosy café. It offers freshly baked vegan cakes.

I had a slice of lemon bread with a great cappuccino. It was served with pomegranate. It was a great place to end the tour. The atmosphere is very chill and intimate. Perfect place to wind down.

Sightseeing in Prenzlauer Berg

When you’re navigating your way between these amazing eateries, you’re discovering the neighbourhood around you. The map that takes you to your next bite also informs you about the sights that you’re passing by. From Zeiss Planetarium, specialized Swedish candy shop ‘Herr Nilsson Godis’, Helmholtz Square and many other interesting gems off the beaten path.

Prenzlauer Berg

The tour offers all in all 6 bites, but alas I didn’t have luck because two of the places that were on my map were closed that day. But Bitemojo food tour is very fair and offers you Bitecoin (very clever name) to exchange for a bite at another restaurant of your choosing in Berlin. They have a large list of venues where you can go for a bite! Bitemojo keeps your unused bites valid for 6 whole months!

Blumen

Oh well, I guess I’ll have to drop by Berlin again in next 6 months! 🙂

There are a lot of advantages to doing a tour like this. You get to start at what time you want, you can take as much time you wish at a restaurant without feeling like you’re holding up the group.

Neue Liebe

On the other hand, I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re a solo traveller. When I travel alone, I like doing group tours because it usually leads to meeting interesting people that later on you can hang out with for a few hours or go for drinks!

Belgrade’s craft beer scene is getting more noticeable each day. What started with just one or two brands now expanded to almost 10.

Here’s a breakdown of where to try craft beer in Belgrade.

Pivopija Beer Shop

This beer shop is located in Zemun neighbourhood and offers more than 40 types of beer. Try Dogma Crna Krava made by Dogma Brewery. There’s a small sitting area too.

Address: Bezanijska 37

Miners Pub

This is one of the most popular pubs in Belgrade with excellent beer choices. It’s great for hanging out with friends and you can also play foosball or darts. The place can be a bit chaotic and smokey in winter but that’s the case with almost every Serbian bar unfortunately. Try some beers from the Kabinet brewery – the most popular craft beers in Serbia at the moment.

Address: Rige od Fere 16

Samo Pivo

Another very popular beer only place in Belgrade with more than 50 types of beer on offer. Arrive before 9pm or you probably won’t get a table. They also have a summer garden and the staff is very helpful and knowledgeable.

Majstor Za Pivo

One of the biggest craft beer stores in the Balkans. You’ll find over 150 beers here.

Address: Hercega Stjepana 15

Pub & Bar Kabinet

Address: Milutina Bojica 2

Berliner

This place is different than the others as it also serves food, mostly German (as you could tell from the name). There’s a good selection of beers and food wise, they serve sausages, burgers and hot wings.

Address: Brace Krsmanovic 6

The Black Turtle Pub

The Black Turtle represents a chain of pubs with four pubs in the city center and a mini-brewery established in 2000. They are famous for their blueberry, lemon and strawberry beers.
