Favourite "Turkish" foods
« on: October 09, 2006, 10:29:35 pm »
I thought I would start a thread about Turkish foods. Asking people really what their favourite Turkish foods are? There are many Turkish shops in London, TFC Turkish Food Centre's are all over the place.

So what is your favourite Turkish foods?



For me it has to be fallafel with pitta bread and salad with humous.
Lamb shish kebab with salad in pitta bread and hot sauce. (Occasionally when I am really hungry, lamb donner kebab is another favourite.

For desert, Rumbaba(Not alchoholic)


Over to you..............

Lamb donner is probably the only Turkish food i've eaten.  Can't say It's a favourite but as it's the only one i'll have to pick that ':p'

There is a place in town where I live Called the "Purple Cafe" this place serves all foods from the Mediterranean sea. First time I was there I had a Greek Gyro with Turkish Tea.

Waarning! tea from Turkey is extreamly sweet, so don't drink it if you have a weak stomach. ':shock:'

Actually, gyros are essentially a variation of the doener kebap, so that sounds as if it would be a fairly common pairing.

Turkish coffee, of course. It has an unfortunate side effect of making one's stomach hurt for the rest of the day unless one's stomach is made of cast iron, but it is quite worth it.

Chicken Shish Kebab, I just like chicken so I'd have to go with that.

A new turkish food place just opened in my town, so we went there and I got some lamb thing, It was nice, but I also like turkish delight, they have all different types and I like them all!

BLARG to most (not all) Turkish food.

I'm sorry to just dismiss an entire type of ethnic cuisine like that, but I'm still rather bitter about my failed romance with the doner kebab. I feel like the first five or six kebabs you ever eat will be HOLY CRAP the most delicious street food you've ever tasted and you want to have this for dinner every day FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!, but after that... it gets old pretty quick.

God, I can't even walk past a kebab stand anymore without retching a little. Every time I smell one, I can feel the oil oozing out of my pores.
