The Underground Athenian Taverna - Diporto Agora
In the basement of a 150-year-old neoclassical building in the center of Athens, is a traditional Greek taverna. It's called Diporto, although there's no sign, and taverna looks like it could be from 1950. 

There are two doors, which lead to a vintage cellar, no menu, and just a few dishes that remain unchanged. Menu items include a horiatiki, a Greek salad, buttery gigantes or large white beans, vrasto, a boiled goat, pork or beef dish, and a fried fish.

Diporto is near the Varvakeios market, a large fish and meat market. All sorts of people visit the taverna for a good meal, including butchers and fishermen, businessmen, lawyers, artists, migrants, and tourists, often filling the place up. 

Address: Platia Theatrou, Socratous 9
