Lokum Kokoreç – Keeping Turkey’s Famous Street Food Firmly On The Map

Lokum Kokoreç is a place that is trying to appeal to the masses. Most Turks don’t need that appeal. They’re more than aware of how tasty this offal is. Tempting the taste buds – that’s what Yerguzlar Caddesi is becoming an expert at. Yerguzlar Caddesi is the street in Fethiye that runs from the courthouse, …

Why We Love A Lunch At Gül Pension & Restaurant, Faralya

It’s the Turkey of days gone by at Gül Pension and Restaurant in Faralya. No airs and graces, here. A bit like Bülent’in Yeri in Kayaköy. Whilst exclusive boutique hotels and luxury villas have certainly found their way to the steep, terraced mountainsides of Faralya, village life also continues to tick along as it has …

Meri Bar, Çalış – Part Of The Çalış Furniture

Meri Bar. There are seafront bars and restaurants all along the beach in Çalış. A famous sunset to marvel over as you drink and dine.

Dining On Classic Turkish Cuisine At Boğaziçi Restaurant, Fethiye

We love Fethiye harbour’s Boğaziçi Restaurant! Every town has them. Those places that make you feel safe and comfortable because it just feels like they’ve been around forever.

Return To Paşa Kebap – It Had To Happen Sometime

You fancied a pide, you went to Paşa Kebap. You wanted lahmacun, you went to Paşa Kebap. You wanted a takeaway – or even delivery service – you went to Paşa Kebap. This was back in the late ’90s. A time when eateries in Fethiye weren’t nearly as abundant as they are now. What we …

Babadağ Kafeterya – Perfect Snack Food Simplicity

Eating; most definitely one of our favourite pastimes. We cook Turkish recipes at home and we also love to eat out, too. Yeah, we love us a posh treat every now and then: a seafood feast at Girida Port, perhaps, or a steak at Çarıklı Et. But Fethiye is also blessed with oodles of places …

You wouldn’t know it was there, if you didn’t know it was there. And we don’t just mean the restaurant we’re going to write about; Charcoal Palace – Mangal Saray in Çalış.
