Miran Deli


Evripidou St in Psirri is lined with spice shops and gives a rare glimpse into old Athens. Miran deli was established in 1922 and its shop is worth a visit, at the very least for its photo value.

Specialising in cured meats and in particular pastrami and soutzoukakia (tasty sausages), it also has a great range of loose spices and cheeses. A seated tasting area allows you to sample their products.
