Food + Wine

World's Best Beach Food

Mezes in Mykonos, Greece

The beach: Agios Sostis Beach on Mykonos's north shore

The place: Kiki's

The dish: The delectable offerings at the salad bar: tabouleh, curried fusilli-and-chicken salad, beets in yogurt sauce, or black-eyed peas with parsley and olive oil

After all the good old fried-with-a-side beach food out there, it may come as a surprise (or a relief) to discover that great beach food isn't always deep-fried, grilled, greasy, or fishy. At Kiki's, a relaxed favorite on a tiny beach on Mykonos's north shore, there's no phone, no address, no sign, and no electricity. But there is that rare thing: something healthy and satisfying to eat within sight of the ocean. Put your name on the list, get a chilled bottle of wine, and cool your heels in the waves on the sheltered, tiny beach below the restaurant while you wait for a table on the shady patio. The place serves straightforward grilled entrées like chicken, pork chops, and seafood, but while waiting for your main dish to come off the coals, you can help yourself to Kiki's excellent salad bar: bowls heaped with creamy, yogurt-coated beets; plump artichokes dipped in lemon juice; and cucumbers dressed in a deliciously light and garlicky tzatziki sauce, among other tasty dishes. But save room for whatever Kiki's chef slammed down on the grill for you: The portions are enormous. You can't eat healthy all day, can you?
