One of my and Nicole’s favorite places is the Sponge Docks – Sponge Capital of the World. When I was younger, my dad owned a Greek restaurant, Plaka, in the Sponge Docks. Plaka’s specialty was gyros. Gyro means to go round and round in Greek. Gyrate is also a derivative. I enjoyed growing up around the Docks.
We love to send people to the area, especially to Hellas Bakery. Tell them Christos sent you!
