Looking for a hearty Sunday tsipouro lunch or a cosy midweek tsipouro dinner away from the city’s buzz? Doukissa on the outskirts of Chalandri is one of the most decent new entries in the last few months. Housed in an old mansion with a lovely garden and a greta fireplace indoors, the meze restaurant is the perfect antidote for some good alcohol and friendly cheers.

It’s been a few weeks since I last visited and truth is at first the restaurant didn’t really win me over with their menu. But as I started taking note of other dishes, the hospitable staff and the cosy feeling of this quiet meze haven something changed.

Although offering both fish and meat-based dishes, I think Doukissa plays best on the latter. It’s why I probably enjoyed my second dinner here a lot. We ordered a colorful picked cabbage salad (aka politiki in Greek), some tasty and boiling-hot vlitta greens and a delicious grilled mature cheese that is served with a touch of tomato jam – simply amazing!

Although Doukissa doesn’t really go big on main courses (everything is more for sharing) the beef patties were definitely one to order again (as the night went on with more tsipouro). If you do visit during the wintertime, do make an effort to sit by the fireplace for some extra cosiness.

Oh! And don’t forget to order some dessert. They do a spectacular ekmek with tsoureki, served with kaimaki ice cream, as well as a fine and moist enough pecan pie served with some chocolate ice cream.
