What's better? The food here is cheap, mouthwatering and the taste would keep lingering in your mouth throughout the day! There's no way you can end your day starving here!
There are so many flavors, spices, ingredients that Turkish food would deserve one entire and delicious blog-post.
One thing you have to keep in mind is: Try Everything!
What you should try?
The Döner kebab, a piece of mutton or sometimes chicken grilled on a large pin for long hours (just like shawarma).
The iskender kebap, a version of Döner Kebap with pieces of meat served with Turkish bread, yoghurt and tomato sauce. One of the favorites!
The Manti, Turkish ravioli with yogurt! A must among locals!
Try the mussels stuffed with vinegar ice sold on the street in Taksim, at any time of day or nigh. Unique in the world.
The Boreks is a puff pastry stuffed with cheese, spinach and/or meat. They are found in pastries.
AND OF COURSE the Baklava, consisting of pastry and pistachio in general, and a kind of honey syrup. It’s divine!
The Kunefe is dessert whose locals are fond of, served hot and crispy, made with cheese.
Never miss a Turkish breakfast consisting of Olives, cheese, veggies, eggs and tea!
A full day meal costs about 60-70 TL.
