Greek custom of Tsiknopempti (loosely translatable as “Barbecue Thursday”) involves the massive consumption of charred meat in the evening of Thursday, ten days before the beginning of the Great Lent. “Koutouki” is the word we use for a specific kind of restaurant with references to the old style of rebetiko. My definition is not as enlightening as it should be so you had better visit Karabiths, one of the oldest and the most representative “Koutouki(a)” of Athens. There you can find grilled meat, fish and other appetizers and of course the all time classic meatballs.
Karabiths first opened its doors back in 1926 and with the wine barrels decorations inside it stays true to the feeling of the old times. In the summertime they serve food in a wonderful yard also faithful to the 30′s – 40′s style. It is considered historic not only for its age but also for the famous customers, especially the politicians.
