Çalış Kebabs & Dürüm – A Favourite Fethiye Kebab Haunt

"When we eat out, where would you say we go most?" "If we're in Fethiye, Popeye's boat or the kebab place if we're in Çalış." "Yeah, I think that, too...so why have we never written about the kebab place in Çalış?" This was a little conversation between me and Barry a short while back - and … [Read more...]

Yeşil Asma Yaprağı – Simple Lokantas Are The Best

When it comes to fast food, Fethiye is just packed with choices of where to fuel your belly quickly and cheaply for the day ahead. And nooo, we're not talking about the big international famous fast food chains. (Although there are a number of those too these days). We're talking about Turkish fast … [Read more...]

Köfte Ekmek – Simplicity Is Tough To Beat

As you'll know, if you dip into this blog on a relatively regular basis that is, we're quite partial to the odd bit of köfte every now and then. No, correct that; we love köfte! It's got to be homemade köfte of course. None of this processed nonsense. And thankfully, there are a few places around … [Read more...]

Dürüm At Mozaik Bahçe In Fethiye – What Took Us So Long?

We know we've written about Mozaik Bahçe restaurant in Fethiye on numerous occasions - but we've felt the urge to do another post today. This is because, over the years, we've munched our way through quite a hefty proportion of the menu. I just love their chicken şiş, Barry the lamb, but we often … [Read more...]

Anacığım Balık Ekmek – Whatever Istanbul Can Do, Fethiye Can Do, Too

We've all seen the photos - you know the ones; all the ornate boats bobbing about on Istanbul's Golden Horn against the dreamy backdrop of the minarets of Süleymaniye Camii. Inside the boats are griddles, constantly on the go, with rows of mackerel fillets sizzling away, waiting to be placed between … [Read more...]

Anyone For Tost? Iksirci Tezcan In Fethiye Can Sort You Out

When friends and family come to Fethiye on holiday, routine goes through the window and the kitchen becomes a tad neglected as we grab snacks here and there, en route to their hotels and apartments to meet up with them.

Turkish Food Focus – Kokoreç At Çiftlik Market

A couple of weeks ago we decided it was time to get out the comfortable footwear and blow away the the winter cobwebs by walking to Çiftlik from Çalış Beach. And, although aimless wandering is good, we also decided to kill two birds with one stone by making our inaugural visit to Çiftlik Thursday … [Read more...]

Bülent’in Yeri – Part Of Kayaköy’s Furniture

This post has been a long time coming. Way back when, in December 2009, we did post about walking from Fethiye to Kayaköy. At the end of the walk, we suggest you reward yourself with a traditional gözleme at Bülent'in Yeri (Bülent's Place) and the plan was to write a blog post about Bülent'in Yeri … [Read more...]

Turkish Street Food – Yengen Burger

Every Friday we post a Fethiye photo - a photo that shows a scene from anywhere in the general Fethiye area. So far, as with last week's Çalış canal photo, the pictures have been of actual scenery - but today is a little bit different. We do have a photo...but we're going foodie. A couple of … [Read more...]

Turkish Food: Konya Etli Ekmek

Since starting this blog, we've noticed a bit of a theme to our daily life. We're always meaning to go somewhere or do something, and on a lot of occasions, we never actually get round to doing it. This theme has been creeping into a lot of posts too, so recently we decided to kick ourselves up the … [Read more...]
