The White Tower of Thessaloniki

Right in the heart of Thessaloniki near the water you'll find the White Tower.  I'm not really sure what it was used for throughout history, but presently it houses the Thessaloniki museum.
On the top floor of the museum they have a re-creation of a Thessaloniki taverna with tables set up all around.  On each of these tables is a video of someone making a classic Thessaloniki food, including this dessert table.  I sat here watching someone make desserts for the longest time.  Then I went down from the tower, walked into a bakery and ate some of those Thessaloniki desserts.
