What 5 Euros might get you in Thessaloniki!

Today I indulged in one of my favorite pastimes when I lived in Greece: a fresh INT New York Times (used to be called INT Herald Tribune) and a bite to eat from the place of my choice, on an afternoon all to myself. Thus I went into Thessaloniki's iconic/Jewish Modiano Marketplace -- not exactly thriving these days --  to a joint I had visited last summer. For 5EU you get a glass of tsipouro w/anise (purer than ouzo) and a meze plate. I did say that I wasn't very hungry, yet I got a plate as pictured...and finished every bite. With nice songs on the radio to boot. Opa!
