Tsiknopempti at Omega Ouzeri
Get your early Mardi Gras on, Greek style, with the food-filled festivity that is Fat Thursday. With tsikna meaning "the smell of burning food" and pemtpi meaning "Thursday", the star of the show is the tsiknopempti meat platter: citrus pork and lamb sausages with fennel spices, roasted chicken with grapes, cured beef, and more. Get your fill of smoked meat this weekend, then come back on the 19th for Clean Monday and get some vegan dishes to cleanse.
