The Greeks don’t get nearly enough credit for their cuisine as their neighbors the Italians do. Spanakopita, aka spinach pie, is one of the most popular savory dishes the Mediterranean country has to offer. It’s a staple in the many bakeries you’ll find on every corner.

Made with feta cheese, thin layers of filo pastry, and onions, it offers up a hearty bite at a surprisingly cheap cost. Plus, it can be eaten hot or cold, making it the perfect takeaway snack. Its origins are difficult to trace, but it’s thought that this particular dish is around 400 years old.
