Kalispera on a dreary Sunday night in Sydney. I hope everyone has had a good week. I have just started a new job which is very exciting, I have been learning the ropes and getting back into the working life.

This post is a really exciting one to write as Mykonos in Greece is known as the party island. Not only do they party hard, but it is full of beautiful beaches, fantastic food and good shopping. All my posts from Greece are going to be extremely biased because I absolutely love it there but if anyone is planning a European trip, you cant miss the Greek islands, you won’t be disappointed, I promise!

Mykonos Port - Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake

Just casually take a stroll around the shops and down to the water and you will already fall in love. The thing I love about Europe is that the restaurants allow you to literally eat on the water. The sea will be splashing at your feet whilst you feast on the freshest of seafood and traditional Greek food and wine.

Yoghurt Fruit & Greek Honey for Breakfast - Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake

Breakfast outside our apartment…thick and creamy Greek yoghurt, covered in honey and topped with a mixture of figs, strawberries, kiwi, grapes and plums. Being the most important meal of the day, this set me up for a day at the beach recovering from the party antics of the night before.

Afrojack at Paradie Night Club - Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake

We got to see Afrojack one night at Paradise Club. He didn’t come on till about 2.30am and was still playing at 7.30am when we decided to leave. A day in Mykonos consists of sleeping in, eating, beach, nap time, eating/drinking, partying and then going to sleep when the sun is up.

Morning Crepe after partying - Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake

Being a bit cheeky, we stopped off for a early morning crepe…I went with Nutella and strawberry. Not the most perfect thing to eat before going to bed…but hey it tasted good at the time.

The famous Mykonos windmills were right next to our apartment so we stopped off for a sunrise photo.

Nammos Restaurant – Psarou Beach

Nammos Psarou Beach Mykonos - Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake

A trip to Mykonos is only complete once you lunch at Nammos Restaurant at Psarou Beach. The beach itself is beautiful and filled with beautiful people. Good luck getting a spot if you havenet booked a sunbed in advance…They will most likely make exceptions for models, shipping heirs and aristocrats. We booked a table in the restaurant for 3pm which is a good time if you want to eat, enjoy some wine, maybe go for a swim and then be pleasantly relaxed, wined and dined for when the music gets louder at about 6…The plates are cleared, the bottles start popping and everyone is dancing on the tables….This is why I love Greece!

Jes and I looking bronzed and deciding on what to order.

Bread at Nammos - Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake

Bread always makes itself to the table without having to be ordered in Europe..I personally love it. Those watching their figure may be overly tempted by those extra carbs before every meal.

Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake - Xoriatiki Salata Greek Salad at Nammos Psarou

Greek salad (xoriatiki salata) is another staple that is always on the table in a Greek house. Traditionally a Greek salad consists of cucumber, capsicum  tomato, onion, olives and fetta cheese. Here they also have some pickled chillies and capers for a bit of spice and saltiness.

We ordered a plate of cheese for the table..All were Greek cheeses and consisted of Kaseri, Haloumi and Kefalograviera (my favourite).

Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake - Fresh Tune Sushi Roll at Nammos

I was craving a bit of sushi so ordered this for us to share, a spicy tuna roll. Generally in Greece I would not even dare to eat sushi as the quality is pretty poor, but Nammos has fresh seafood being walked into the restaurant by the fisherman whilst you are eating so you know the quality is of a high standard.

Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake - Chocolate Ball Dessert at Nammos

Feeling really full we chose a dessert to share between the four of us. This reminded me of a big profiterole covered in thick melting chocolate and filled with a mousse inside. Very decadent and having a bit each was the perfect cure to the sugar craving. We needn’t have worried, we probably danced most of our dinner off later in the night.

Mykonos Greece Food & Travel - My Kiki Cake - Party time with Moet & Chandon at Nammos

Now is where the fun begins…our plates were cleared, the music began to blast and the party side of Nammos came out of it’s shell. The DJ mixes it up between Western and Greek music. Ana takes charge and orders us a bottle of Moet to get started.

The waiters are extremely friendly and get into the party as much as we did.

Nammos is one of those places that has to be experienced when travelling through Mykonos. Not only is the food tasty and fresh, but the atmosphere really sums up what a holiday in Mykonos is all about.
