Similar to a pizza, Pide is a popular Turkish fast-food-like dish, which is a thin crust of pastry is covered with toppings including cheese, egg, diced meat, chicken or tuna and then it is put it into a high heat stone oven. Similar to a Pide is Lahmacu, which is also a pizza like dish with a topping of finely minced meat and onions with spices on flaky thin dough. It is served with tomatoes, lettuce, parsley or rocket and most people prefer to squeeze lemon on it and roll to eat easier like tacos. Pide originates from the early Syrian cuisine of the Levant and the name comes from Arabic ‘dough with meat’.

Mixed GrillKofte and Kebab

Kofte is the Turkish version of meatballs. Sold in a wrap as street food or served on a plate with rice and salad in restaurants. There are many different types of kofte and their taste will vary depending on the region that recipe originates from. Çiğ kofte is unusual as it is raw meatballs originating from the south east of Turkey and these are traditionally eaten as a snack or appetizer.There are more than 40 different types of kebabs in Turkey but the most popular is the traditional street kebab. Large skewers of rotating chicken or beef are cooked slowly. When an order is made, the cook will slice stripes from the outside of the skewer, place them in a pastry wrap, and then fill it with lettuce, onions, and tomatoes.

Turkish turkey

by Light_Work

I asked what Turks call turkeys and the answer was "Greeks". I have never eaten Greek there, scared to order it. Heck I can't even pronounce the menu tonight.
"Patlıcan ve domates ile Yunnan kızartma".
I have some ingredients to use up tonight and a vague plan on how. "Experimental food" is what these dishes are called.
I am going to look again here before I commit. I just got ideas from the's.
A clay roasting oven is used, foil is prohibited and nothing else has a cover. Don't ask.
1 eggplant scooped out
2 turkey legs, lightly spiced
