Traditional Greek Meat Dishes 

One of the most popular Greek dishes is kleftiko, commonly prepared at festivals and celebrations. It consists of a piece of lamb or goat and is then warped in foil and baked. Another common dish is biftekia, a traditional Greek dish often described as a cross between an American burger and flattened meatballs. The patties are made with a combination of ground pork, beef, or lamb, and mixed with onions, breadcrumbs, eggs, and herbs.


Souvlaki is one of the most popular Greek dishes that you have probably seen at most Greek Mediterranean restaurants around the world. This dish consists of small cubes of skewered and grilled pork, chicken, lamb, or beef. It is a very popular fast-casual food item as it is prepared quickly at small eateries.  Souvlaki is rooted in ancient Greece, where it was originally called kandaulos, and consisted of grilled meats, pita bread, cheese, and dill.
