Typical Cretan taverna menu card
Vegetarian cusine in Greece is simply stating the obvious - meals prepared or cooked with plant-based food. Few bottled flavourings are used which may be deceptive - it's usually oil, lemon, vinegar, tomato sauce, etc. Sometimes, the vegetable is mentioned as a menu item eg batsaria (beetroot), melitzanes me tiri (eggplant with cheese), etc. They generally don't do 'creative' cuisine -that's something a home cook will do. If you're a vegetarian, and you can wade your way through the menu card, picking out the non-meat meals, you'll find plenty to eat!
