Zakynthos is not only a highlight for the eyes, but also for the palate. Sarca is probably the culinary landmark of the island. This is a dish consisting of beef with tomatoes, feta cheese and garlic. Further popular is the dish Skordostubi, which is prepared from tomatoes, eggplants and olive oil with garlic. Last but not least, we recommend you to try Zanktek in the local taverns. This is rabbit in tomato sauce.
