Bougatsa, sweet or savory, is your favorite eating habit in the morning. Brought by refugees from Mikra Asia after its catastrophe, it is based on a different recipe from other pies and is a very popular snack in Northern Greece. The bougatsa of Thessaloniki and the bougatsa of Serres are famous and are considered to be the best.
The bougatsa mainly contains cream filling (which it’s the most popular version and is served with icing and cinnamon) or cheese. It can also be found with spinach or minced meat filling, but also with cocoa cream. In any variation, every visitor of Central Macedonia must try it - and, of course, will look forward to tasting it again on their next visit!
