We visited Rhodes Old Town three times during our week stay. The first visit was for lunch and a wander around the old streets. Mythos is the local beer, I asked for a ‘small’ and the above picture shows the size of the ‘small’ beer, pretty much as big as my head!
I was really looking forward to the Greek cuisine, and it certainly didn’t disappoint, one of the best selections we had was during our second visit, plenty of hummus, tzatziki and my new favourite
Melitzanosalata, which is a traditional Greek eggplant dip; delicious. I’ve been Googling recipes, but if you know of any please leave a comment!!
I had read up about the offerings of Rhodes before we visited, and I really wanted to get my hands on natural sponge. We walked down to the marina, where there were two floating stalls, with hundreds of pieces of sponge. A small sponge in Boots cost me £16, whereas I bought two medium and one large piece here for a mere €17; such a bargain!
On our second to last night we went back to the Old Town for dinner, it was very busy, but you weren’t hassled to come in to the bars and restaurants like we were in the day, so it seemed far more relaxed.
Three visits was plenty enough, and to be honest, I think if we’d gone again I’d have been bored. Definitely worth a visit though.
