A paradise for foodies

If you’re a foodie you’ll find yourself in ‘food paradise’.

Turks are passionate about food and eating and drinking aren’t merely about servicing the body’s needs. It’s a rare Turk who regards food as simple fuel. Prepare to be dazzled by the array of meze (hors d’oeurves) that will appear in restaurants and savor the smells and tastes of Turkish cuisine.

Meze: an event rather than a type of dish
