falafel land


Falafel Land is not only one of the most famous fast-food restaurants in Santorini, but it’s also a fantastic place to go for a casual dining experience.

Iceroll is such a fun place to get ice cream in the summer heat, and we recommend you try it at least once while you’re in Athens (though it may be pricey). You choose your iceroll foundation, and then whatever you want to combine it with.

There is a leaf next to the vegan selections on the menu, so you may figure out how to build your own vegan combination.

We love sweet and tasty food, that is why we wanted to present to you another ice cream shop in Greece.
