Koulouri at Ouzounián Bakery
The koulouri is, quite simply, a breakfast classic. This sesame-sprinkled bread crown has been a Thessaloniki tradition for the past century and has become a staple of everyday life. Savvas describes it as a “something quite simple and easy to grab on the go.” While koulouria (the plural form of koulouri) is sold on every other street corner, his top choice is at Ouzounián Bakery on Leontos Sofou Street. Apart from the traditional sesame version, Ouzounián offers a variety of koulouria choices, including a dough dotted with raisins or filled with tahini or chocolate.
