Who would think that a restaurant in Athens near the Acropolis would advertise specialties of the Mani, the most remote and poorest district of the Peloponnese? Mani Mani does its down-home cuisine beautifully: rooster bardouniotikos (rooster stewed with feta, siglino—cured pork that is first salted, then smoked, and finally boiled—and grilled sausages). With a convenient location, good prices, and memorable food, Mani Mani might be enough to make you curious about the Mani itself, one of the most hauntingly beautiful parts of the Peloponnese.
