27 Delicious Turkish Foods Everyone Must Try  part two


10. Meze

It's common to have meze, or a range of cold appetisers, with drinks or in place of a full meal. Dinner guests are provided with around 20 choices, bean dishes, salads, and 

spreads on small dishes to eat with bread.

11. Dolma

Dolma is often used to refer to stuffed vine leaves, but encompasses any stuffed vegetable. Vine leaves are popular in Turkey, but so are stuffed peppers, courgettes, and aubergine.

12. Lokum


Lokum, or Turkish Delight, is a nougaty dessert served with a variety of flavours and fillings and often topped with powdered sugar. It's always best fresh, as pre-packaged versions tend to go too light on the fillings and too heavy on the sugar, drying it out.

13. Şiş Kebap


Meat on a stick originated in Turkey, wouldn't you know? Sis Kebab is typically lamb, chicken or fish served on a wooden or metal rod, often with bread. Dip it in yogurt or eat it on its own; it's always tender, savoury, and delicious.

14. Pilav


Turkish rice is simply put, delicious. Buttery and toasted, it can be the tastiest thing on your plate, and that's not a bad thing. Don't miss out on smothering your rice in yogurt - it's actually amazing.





15. Kayısı Tatlısı


Tasty morsels of apricot stuffed with cream and nuts is a signature Turkish dessert that will blow your mind.

16. Baklalı Enginar


Peeled artichokes dressed in oil and lemon juice and served cold with beans and fresh parsley, this dish is fresh, light, and a perfect summer meal.
