Turkish cuisine caters amazingly for a variety of diets. For a vegetarian starter, go for the delicious Sigara Borek dish of freshly fried pastry filled with creamy feta cheese, or go for the kizartma of local courgette fried with peppers and aubergine in a rich garlic yogurt sauce. If you’d prefer meat, then go for a gorgeously crispy chicken breast with mixed salad in a specially spiced Turkish dressing. For your main course, why not try the speciality of shish kebabs – lamb marinated in a yummy Turkish sauce grilled on skewers. The staff even grill the meat in front of you, creating a great atmosphere and some dining theatrics. If you have room, try a traditional Baklava pastry with a heavenly filling of pistachios, walnuts, almonds and kaymak between the delicate layers.
