Lefkas Island Shopping: 2 reviews and 1 photos

On Ioannou Mela street, the main pedestrian street of Lefkada?s old city, you?ll find a lot of shops with local delicacies, such as nougats with honey and almonds(my favorite is ?Santa Maura?), liquor ?rosoli?, flavored with fruits, flowers and cinnamon, wines made by the local grapes ?verzami?, salami ?Delimari?, jams and others. Do check the ingredients to make sure that you buy an authentic product, with no technical flavors and preservatives.
Also, in the city?s bakeries you?ll find the famous ?ladopita?, some kind of cake with olive-oil, occasionally flavored with orange or lemon. It tastes super!
However, it is not equally easy to find the local species of legumes ( lentils from Eglouvi, chick peas and vetches) which are famous for their intense taste and aroma. The production is very small and it hardly covers the local needs. But if you go to the mountainous villages Eglouvi, or Karya and ask the locals, you might be lucky. Don?t be surprised if the price for the lentils is about 10 euros per kilo. If you have a delicate palate, you find out that it worth?s it.
