Athens Imported Foods is a destination for all things Greek, including fresh phyllo dough, discount-priced spices and an array of fresh cheeses, olives and yogurt. We make our own baklava with bread-crumb-and-nut filling, and will assist home bakers by grinding walnuts on request.
In addition to food, we sell religious icons, hand-crank pasta machines and black fishermen's caps.
You're sure to love our Moroccan oil-cured olives, each black button moist and fragrant. Pitted, they make a simple, refreshing salad tossed with fresh bibb or Boston lettuce, olive oil and some trimmed fresh orange slices. You have to stop in and try our fenekia cookies, practically soaked in lemon and honey. Our spinach pies are made elegantly with flaky phyllo, not pita dough.
Look for us at any of the coming Greek festivals. In addition to selling supplies to the events, we often donate food and labor.
