Greek Cuisine Withstands the Test of Time

For more than 4,000 years, Greeks have been dominating the culinary world with their uniquely delicious cuisine. Heavily influenced by the Mediterranean Sea; Greek cuisine is headlined by fresh fish, olives, potatoes, figs, dates, various vegetables, herbs and other meats like lamb. Wine is also a significant component, not only for drinking but also for cooking. The first cookbook ever written in history was by Archestratus in the year 320 B.C., so it’s safe to say that Greeks have extensive experience when it comes to creating delicious dishes.

A recipe doesn’t withstand the test of time unless it is built on sound food principles. At KIKI on the River, you will find some of the most traditional dishes the culture is known for as well as delicious modern Greek cuisine.
