rOOTS Vegetarian & Vegan Place

The vegetarian/vegan rOOTS is a cute little restaurant in the centre of Thessaloniki, near Aristotelous Square. They serve meatless versions of beloved Greek dishes as well as delightful adaptations of international cuisine. Tried the vegan gyros (seitan) — the best option for vegans who still want to have a taste of the traditional gyros. Every dish seems to have been made with Instagram in mind. Cocktails and wines are delicious, too.


Take a walk through the famous Ladadika area, near Aristotelous square, and you will find a number of traditional restaurants, ouzeries and taverns. Enjoy grills and inventive recipes such as kontosouvli, giaprakia and gardoubes with a glass of wine or ouzo. If you are craving seafood, you will be excited to try mussel pilaf, grilled sardine, frutti di mare, shrimp saganaki and stuffed squid in one of the many fish taverns of the town. Thessaloniki caters to a variety of tastes. The service is usually unhurried yet very friendly, and most people are comfortable speaking English. Traditional Macedonian food, Oriental cuisine and European cuisine, as well as many vegan and vegetarian options await you.
