Top five foods to try in Turkey
Turkish food can be found in most major cities and has become an increasingly popular type of cuisine throughout the world. However, the real thing can’t be compared to the Turkish dishes you’ll find in the streets of your local city. Here’s five of the best foods to try in Turkey on your next holiday.
Best enjoyed by eating with your hands, this local delicacy can be found all over Turkey at local restaurants. Some specialise in more or better toppings than others.
The restaurant is situated in a rural area shaded by large trees. You can choose between table seating or lounging on Turkish carpets and cushions while you enjoy your meal. A demonstration is also given on how the pancakes are rolled out and baked.
These tasty meatballs come in many different combinations, some including melted cheese, or some thrown into a juicy stew. They are served hot with a variety of different side dishes. These can include soft flatbread, roasted Jalapeno peppers, salads, or even other types of meat, such as steak strips.
Honey-based Turkish delight is the traditional and best form of this sweet treat. It consists of rolled pieces of honeyed goodness, nuts, dried fruits such as figs, and flavours including rose and chocolate. Some are even made covered with a fine layer of real sugared rose petals.
Turkish delight can be found all over Turkey, but the very best can be found in the Spice Bazaar in Istanbul. Check out a shop known as Hazer Baba, where they also sell authentic saffron spice and delicious nuts and dried fruits.
