Turkish Cuisine

Eating out in Turkey offers infinite possibilities. In addition to those eateries offering traditional Turkish fare, one can find restaurants-a-plenty serving cuisine from all around the globe.

Local Specialities

Sampling the delights of the region’s cuisine is in itself an adventure. “Must try’s” include su böreği (layers of filo pastry baked with cheese), köpoğlu (fried aubergine and yoghurt) and çiçek dolmasi (stuffed squash flower). For “fast food” Turkish style, the Döner ekmek (grilled lamb sliced and sandwiched in thick crust bread) and gözleme (savory pancakes) come highly recommended!

Don’t forget to too sample the Turkish mint tea – thought to be one of the best ways of cooling down on a hot summer’s day, and Raki – liqueur produced from anise. The latter is best consumed alongside a variety of meze.
