The classics in Manchester: Turkish restaurants won’t fail
So, we know a little about how the Turkish kitchen rolls and we know that in Manchester there are more Turkish restaurants than you might assume, so the question now becomes, what can you expect to find on a Turkish menu? Well, good news: Manchester’s Turkish restaurants do the classics damn well. Mantı is a popular and very traditional option that is essentially small beef or lamb dumplings that are boiled or fried and served with yogurt or butter. As well, baklalı enginar is peeled artichokes dressed in oil and lemon juice and served cold with beans and fresh parsley – perfect for summer – while pide, or Turkish pizza, is fantastic if you’re after something a little heavier. It’s a boat-shaped flatbread that goes big on spinach, minced meat and cheese and you’ll find it at most of Manchester’s Turkish restaurants.
