  Kostas with our 'lasagna'
by vtveen

We were driving around in the western part of Samos between the villages of Tsourlei and Leka, when it started to rain. We decided to flee into ‘Kostas Place’, just opposite the car park in the centre of this rural village.

Kostas Place is a café/snack bar, very basic, honest and simple with just a couple of local men playing cards and having a Greek coffee. Kostas, the owner, recommended us a home made pasta dish for lunch. So we did and to be honest it was very tasteful (and extremely cheap) !!

We are grateful for the rain; otherwise we hadn’t visited such a local place. I highly recommend doing the same and experiencing some of the local dishes.

Directions: Leka (but also everywhere on Samos), just opposite the car park in the centre of the village.
