Typical meals at Turkish restaurants in Edinburgh
There are so many fantastic Turkish dishes to try that it can be tough to know where to start. Breakfast is never a bad choice, and the Turkish do it particularly well. Turkish breakfasts are typically rich and include butter, eggs, at least one variety of cheese, sausage and sweet delights like homemade bread with honey and jam. For lunch, start with a tasty soup, or take a gözleme on the go if you’re in a hurry. When it comes dinner, it’s time to splurge – be sure to try an iskender kebap, which comprises thinly sliced grilled lamb with hot tomato sauce, melted sheep butter and yogurt. If you’re a vegetarian, you can’t go wrong with an order of imam bayildi – a dish consisting of a whole eggplant stuffed with tomatoes, garlic and onions plus an array of herbs and spices. You can try each and every one of these dishes plus many others at any of the Turkish restaurants in Edinburgh.
