Turkish cuisine promises a spectrum of flavours combining savoury and sweet ingredients. The cuisine offers a range of appetizers, including cold salads like Cucumber Yoghurt or a spicy 'Ezme' salad made using tomatoes, green peppers & more.
For some hot appetizers, you could enjoy 'Borek', a crispy cheese-filled phyllo pastry, or warm stuffed grape leaves known as 'Dolma'.
When it comes to main courses, the dishes are abundant; tender meat grills, perfectly baked pizza-like pastries known as 'Pide' or even rice specialities like 'Pilav'.
