Turkish Foods Mediterranean In Singapore

The different types of Turkish cuisine
Turkish cuisine has a rich and diverse history, blending influences from the Mediterranean, Middle East, Balkans, and Central Asia. One of the most famous dishes is doner kebab, slow-roasted meat that is shaved off a rotating spit and served on bread or on a plate with vegetables.

Another popular dish is lahmacun, a thin flatbread topped with minced meat, onions, and herbs. Mezza platters are also common in Turkish dining culture—small plates featuring an array of appetisers like hummus, stuffed grape leaves (dolma), or eggplant dip (baba ghanoush).

For those seeking something hearty, try kofte—grilled meatballs made with lamb mixed with spices and bulgur wheat. Pide is similar to pizza but uses Turkish flatbread as the base instead of dough.

Vegetarians can delight in imam bayildi, eggplant stuffed with tomatoes and onions, while seafood lovers can indulge in balik ekmek, fish sandwiches served on crusty bread.

No matter what your taste buds crave, Turkish cuisine offers something for everyone to enjoy!
