Lamb chops!!!

Yassis!

Two years ago my husband and I were in Athens. We ate at a small lamb chop place that had their tables across the street and down an alley under canopies. You ordered by the kilogram. It was near a subway stop and I think a park. We always said if we were to get back to Athens we would go there again. Well we’ll be there for one night but don’t remember how to get there. I had originally found it on trip advisor. Any ideas? If I can find a picture I will post it! Thanks for any help!

Taverna means tavern.

There are around three thousand ones in Athens.

Many places have excellent lamb chops.

If you are talking about the famous Steki you Ilia near the green line station of Thision it is this one

ΤΟ ΣΤΕΚΙ ΤΟΥ ΗΛΙΑ

Επταχάλκου 5, Αθήνα 118 51

ΤΑΒΕΡΝΑ says taverna in Greek, so not a lot of help, sorry!

Someone may be able to work out where you mean, but I can’t immediately think where. Was it very central?

Teles' specialty is pork chops and the OP's description of it's appearance and location don't match. However, I found Teles' to be an excellent place for their flattened pork chops. It's a little in a "dodgy" area but perfectly fine for a dinner while it's still light out.

If you draw a blank (a picture would help!) and can't find the place, there are several great "paidakia" places in Athens. I like To Steki tou Ilia - it, and two others, are described here:

This is the sign in front that I just found. Unfortunately I can’t read what the address is! Any help? The lamb chops were really good!

Yes, that is To Steki tou Ilia, the taverna I mentioned in post 5. They have a reputation for the best paidakia in Athens. Whether that's true or not, of a city where delicious lamb chops are the rule, they are certainly very very good. You were lucky to have stumbled across it! Enjoy Ilia's lamb chops again.

If you can't remember how you got there, it's a short walk from Thissio metro station.
