Eat & Drink
If you’re into gastronomy, you’re going to be pleasantly rewarded by the variety of flavours in Kos. Meat-eaters, seafood lovers and vegetarians can delight in a number of dishes served in the island’s restaurants, from beef patties and grilled octopus to savory cheese pies and nutty baklava. The seaside area near the port offers excellent seafood, salads and local starters (meze), while the neighbourhood of Platani boasts many oriental-type restaurants that produce outstanding Greek dishes with an Anatolian twist. Some of the popular main dishes include pork with rice, shrimps, calamari, and kebabs. Fine original cheeses can also be sampled on the island including Krasotiri (Wine cheese), Xinomizithra (lightly sour white cheese), and Galomizithra (cow’s milk white cheese). Go off the beaten track away from the fast-food eateries that most tourists flock to, and you will be rewarded with the most authentic cuisine of the Dodecanese. Keep some room for the ice-cream shops and eastern-style desserts!
