Discover local Turkish gems
Turkish cuisine is an ancient collection of tradition changed by the slow march of entering neighbouring cuisines. Western European cuisine contributes cheese-making techniques and vegetables, the use of yoghurt enters from central Asia, and the Middle East contributes the spices. Bread is typical throughout accompanied by beetroot, carrot, cucumber, and eggplant. Olive oil, yoghurt, tahini and hummus complete the meal. Turkish breads are cooked in brick ovens, but the Australian version is frequently cooked over hot coals. Popular dishes include the Doner Kebab, Pilaf, Dolma, and of course when it comes to the sweet stuff, Turkish Delight!
Best Turkish restaurants in Melbourne North West
Turkish desserts offer more than one delight. Baklava is a rich, sweet dessert pastry made from layer upon layer of filo crammed with chopped nuts and held together with sticky syrup or honey. Turkish Delight (or Lokum) delights more that just Turkey – it gifts the whole world with (guilty) pleasure. Premium varieties consist of chopped dates, pistachios, hazelnuts and walnuts – all gelled together – and flavoured with rosewater, Bergamot orange, or lemon. Halva is an irresistibly dense sweet confection formed from a crystallised paste of sesame seeds and sugar. Kanafeh is made with a thin noodle-like pastry, soaked in sweet sugar-based syrup and often layered with cheese, clotted cream or nuts. You’d be nuts not to.
Doner Kebab means ‘turning roast’ and shavings of this succulent meat, grilled on a vertical rotisserie, are served in warm pitta bread, with a salad of chopped tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, onion and…easy does it…a splash of hot chilli sauce. Or go for the ever-popular Chicken Shish Kebab. ‘Shish’ is Turkish for ‘skewered meat’ and originates from medieval soldiers using swords as skewers to cook over campfires. Marinated Chicken, Lamb or other meats are grilled with chunks of Veggies like peppers, tomatoes and onions, then served with mixed salad in pitta.
