How to try avgolemono in Athens
Analogues of this soup are found in the most different cuisines of the world: Arabic, Turkish, Jewish, Italian and even in the kitchens of the Balkan peoples. Soup is prepared on chicken broth with the addition of rice and eggs with lemon juice. It is very important to do this correctly to get the right consistency. Density of soup each cook adjusts at it's discretion, but by the way if the soup is too thick it can be used as a sauce for vegetables, dolma or artichokes.

How to do?

1. Go to any restaurant, café or snack bar in the city.
2. Order avgolemono with slices of crusty bread, you can also order souvlaki as a second dish.
3. And do not forget to order ouzo - the national drink of Greece, which you can try only in this country.
