Traditional Turkish Foods

We did our first ever blog post all about our life in Turkey back in November and we can t believe it s taken this long to get round to writing about the amazing Turkish food, pide . Oh well, all good things come to those who wait, as they say and pide is more than good! Pide (pronounced pee-dE ) is often described as Turkish pizza on menus and we guess that s the nearest description. It s a thin, oblong dough base, your chosen filling and then it s folded over around the edges. You can usually watch the guy prepare the base, spinning it in the…

Pii is a very simple Turkish, bread-like, fried dough snack. People in Turkey usually eat this for breakfast, but please, don t let that stop you from eating it whenever you want. =) Until recently, I had no idea that the official name of this dish was called Pii . My mother and the rest of my family call it simply fried dough ( hamur kizartma si ). But pii sounds more fun, so pii it is! Pii is usually eaten plain, without filling. Plain pii is my favourite. But pii with a Turkish cheese or jam filling tastes great too! The ones I made this time…

Hello. Feedback on recent Turkish exploits here. Sultanahmet-Grand Bazaar incredible. Pashminas 5 bucks.Spice Market-smaller & easier to navigate. Every deal was sealed with tea. Most conversations culminated in an offer to go view carpets. We had a company called Turista travel make arragements for us. Advantages: accomodations and flights inside Turkey much cheaper than we could secure for ourselves, multiple day trips to phenomenal archeological sites with very knowlegable guides. Disadvantages- should have said I was a vegetarian, meals…

I love Turkish food

I got called out again Al pastor (from Spanish, In the style of the shepherd) is a dish developed in Central Mexico, likely as a result of the adoption of the shawarma spit-grilled meat brought by Lebanese immigrants to Mexico.[1] Being derived from shawarma, it is also similar to the Turkish doner kebab and the Greek gyros. Whereas shawarma is usually lamb-based (thus the shepherd style name), gyros and tacos al pastor in Mexico are made from pork. So it is about familyYour spirit is a protective one? It is very busy here tonightI love itOnly…

Typical Turkish food

I happen to live near a large Greek population and Halva is a typical Balkan food - but there are Turkish versions and different versions in a couple of other countries - as well as some new versions in the last generation. Keep in mind that many of the ones in America use high-fructose corn syrup instead of honey - or even just sugar - and they will also throw in some other ingredients. That I ve had: a chocolate - a plain one with a chocolate coating (like a candy bar). And I also had a 7-layer one that was something like hazelnut, chocolate…

Turkish food Restaurant

Not a food review. Generous, kind, professional service. Understated. Lunch and dinner. Didnt look at lunch menu: I sleep in. Dcor is casual, Price is reasonable. Romantically candlelit in a dark long corner store front. Perhaps the expectant Womb of Helen? Very spare but romantic room, at least by night.Hip young clientele on this slow Wednesday at 6PM. Napkin service. Lots of long windows to view the bustle outside. Everybody heads down the block for good Burmese or Q . Remember this when the lines for Q and Burma Star are too long. May be drafty…
