Turkish Food 2: Cappadocia

As we get to the end of our stay in Cappadocia, I have discovered some more Turkish cuisine specialities…

1) Pide

Also known as “Turkish Pizza”, this fast food is sold in cafes and restaurants all round Turkey. Its shape is different to Italian pizza – instead of being round it is long and thin, and shaped like a boat. I’m actually not a big fan, as I find them rather greasy, and the toppings are uninspiring – melted cheese and minced meat are the norm. They’re a bit like a bad Dominoes pizza (the dough texture is similar), but they are good for a quick snack when you’re peckish. However, I’d pick an Italian style pizza over them any day!

2) Testi Kebab (more…)
