Apart from the traditional one, there are also bread twists with raisins, cheese, olives and donuts dipped in crunchy crystal sugar. It costs € 0.60 the simple one and vendors can be found on the busiest streets of Athens and close to metro stations.

The delicious corn is salted and usually served with a toothpick to use afterwards. A corn can cost € 2 while a small bag with eight to ten chestnuts might cost around € 6 - € 8.
Salep beverage: Hot beverage usually served in the winter made of the grinded dried tubers of a species of orchid. It is sweet and very aromatic with a bit thick texture served with a touch of cinnamon. The best choice for a walk around Athens in winter.
