Welcome to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Igorota

Miss Iggy on top of the White Tower of Thessaloniki, longingly looking over the city and wondering where she could eat.
Because Thessaloniki is a port city, the fish and seafood are delivered fresh to the restaurants. Very yummy. Olive oil and feta cheese are everywhere.
The Greek sweets, on the other hand, are verrrry verrrry sweet. The most famous sweet pastry is the baklava. Miss Iggy, however, ordered something else:
She pointed at the menu full of Greek alphabetical characters and got a super sweet crepe filled with nuts, white chocolate cream, syrup and nuts.
Greek coffee. A richer version of the regular mocha drink.
