Traditional Products - Resaurant
Like traveling in Greece back in the 60s!
Wherever you may come from, it is sure that you’ve heard at least once about the Greek hospitality and the way simple Greeks treat tourists.
But now you do have the chance to feel it, the chance for a live experience at its best.
Recently, we discovered a cozy traditional grocery store in the village Zefyria of Milos island, which is a “must-visit” spot! Not only for the necessary shopping but for many other reasons as well...
It is called Zikos (a name which comes from a funny Greek black and white movie). The decoration is simple and reminds of the old grocery stores we used to shop from some decades ago, before all these large super markets had opened.
In this beautiful little shop you will find fresh bread and different kinds of traditional pies, honey and spoon candies, drinks, various food and snacks, fruits, but also detergents, kitchenware and toilet staff etc… whatever you shop for in big markets, but in smaller quantities.
Well, up to here it is absolutely logical for a market like this. However, Zikos is one of a kind for another reason: its friendly atmosphere and the family cooking service you can enjoy there! Yes, indeed! The couple prepares delicious meals and appetizers on daily basis. On a very low cost, you can taste traditional Greek recipes or enjoy a coffee or a snack. You can drink ouzo or raki along with tasty titbits or the typical Greek “gyro”. Sit, relax and talk with the locals. Not only will you have fun, but you’ll learn things you didn’t know about the island of Milos and Greece, and finally you will live what mythology was talking about when the word “xenia” was used.
Do not miss to buy authentic handmade woven, knitted by women of the village! Knitted bags and clothes that are nowhere else to be found, in various sizes and types, perfect for you or your beloved ones.
Zikos is open all year round. The owners are citizens of this picturesque village, Zefyria, and will be happy to enter you in their beautiful world. They will give you all the necessary information to discover the beauties of their land and seas, and with their sweet and friendly behaviour, they may become your Greek friends! We promise!
