Thessaloniki: a city for gourmets! Pastourmas
In the heart of Thessaloniki there are two markets where you can still feel the traditional Greek atmosphere: the Kapani market and the Modiano market (closed now for restoration). But in the streets around them you will also find more than enough delicacy stores. Each one is unique. At Edodimon (Vasilis Irakliou 26) you can try different cheeses from all over Greece. But what is even more special is pastourmas. This specialty of raw, dried meat is usually eaten with a glass of ouzo. The meat is seasoned with a spicy mixture of, among other things, garlic and red peppers. Although pastourmas is now mostly made from beef or goat meat, it used to be made mainly from camel meat.
