Turkish coffee and Gazantiep’s famous baklava
Gaziantep, in South East Turkey, is known across Turkey for its pistachios and for making possibly the world’s best baklava. I did not need a second invitation to head here!
The food we have been eating in Turkey is mind-blowing – fresh, tasty and wholesome. The streets are lined with pastry shops, kebab shops, turkish delight shops, nougat stalls… and glistening, dripping, sweet smelling things lure us at every turn …
Below are just a few of Gazantiep’s local offerings…. Help!!! 🙂
Gazantiep’s breakfast favourite “Beyran” – meat and rice in a spicy garlicky soup – accompanied by the usuals, flat bread, “Ayran” (yogurt drink), greens and lemon!
Everything cooked fresh before your eyes!
Yuvarlama – soup of chickpeas, yogurt, rice and meat
Ali Nazik – kebap on a base of mashed eggplant and yogurt – delish!!
Delicious Baklava Dilemmas!
Katmer for breakfast on day two – flatbread layered with nuts and clotted cream. I think we better walk to the bus station today!
