We realised when we did the Fethiye Eating & Drinking tab that we hadn’t actually written about a lot of the places we listed – so we’re going to put that right, right now. Well, for one of the places anyway. More places to come in time. You’re following our work in progress here sorry. We have ideas of what we want the blog to look like. We make a start on the job in hand. And then realise there’s a whole lot of work involved in our new additions.
So the first place we need to mention is Mozaik Bahçe. Some people might have worked out by now that we have a bit of an obsession with heading East (as in the east of Turkey) – and the Hatay region is one area where we would love to spend quite some time.
One of our main urges to head East is because of everything we’ve heard about the landscape and the fantastic cuisine and so for now, Mozaik Bahçe in Fethiye centre is satisfying some of our curiosity about the cuisine at least.
The original owner was really keen to tell people about the food they serve and why Mozaik Bahçe is called Mozaik Bahçe. The present owner is also from Hatay and will share similar knowledge.
The first time we went, he told us that the Hatay region of Turkey is a mixture of cultures and religions (Muslim, Christian, Jewish)…and therefore cuisines. It’s like a mosaic of all of those, hence the name of the restaurant. And how much do we want to go there now? Some time more than soon…
The last time we went, we asked the owner about the food and some of the recipes. He disappeared and came back with a huge Hatay cookery book – all in Turkish. He left it with us and we could make the important bits out and if we ever make it to that area (one day), we shall be looking for a Hatay cookery book. Dream, dream, dream…
