Mastiha Submarine (Ypovrihio) 500g

This fun and simple sweet will bring back instant nostalgia for most Greeks. A classic childhood sugar rush, ypovrichio or ‘submarine’ is a gloopy, glass-like treat that is usually made by spooning it out and placing it in glass of water. Made from sugar, glucose, a little colour and flavour, they sink to the bottom of a tall glass of water. In a rather satisfying way. The concept is simple : Dip, lick then sip your drink and remember that, sometimes, it’s okay to play with your food.

Halvas Drapetsonas, Drapetsona, Attica

The Halvas Drapetsonas workshop was opened in 1924 by Costas Mezardasoglou, a refugee from Asia Minor. Mezardasoglou had worked in a halva factory in Asia Minor, where he learned the art of hand-making traditional halva. Costas began making his own halva using rudimentary means, in an old wooden shack, a few metres away from where production takes place today. When the state donated some land to refugees, Kostas constructed the building that is still the Halvas Drapetsonas workshop. As the years passed, his son George became interested in the business and eventually took over production completely, as Costas became too old to work. Halvas Drapetsonas is the best in Greece, and remains today a traditional, family business, producing all kinds of traditional confectionary.
