Omelet with Staka.  Staka is a very Cretan delicacy and is gathered from the crust that the goat milk has on its surface, if you leave it to cool down, after it has been heated. A truly original #Cretan dish!    Υπέροχη ομελέτα με στάκα- απόλυτα Κρητικό γεύμα! (CC-BY-SA 3.0)

Care for a sweet? Then you just have to taste Kalitsounia, one of the most famous treats in #Crete and in Ierapetra in particular! Its main ingredient is local "Mizithra" sweet cheese, and is scented with cinnamon and bitter orange leaves. In the summer you can put them in the fridge for a more refreshing taste. You can find them in any local pasty shop and each one makes them a little different.    Παραδοσιακά Γιεραπετρίκα καλτσούνια!       (CC-BY-SA 3.0)
