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 West
Here’s a few ideas to chew on. Pide is Turkey’s delicious take on pizza – think fragrant lamb, tender spinach and Beyaz Peymir cheese. This, by the way, is Turkey’s most popular cheese and made from fresh sheep's milk – its pure white and rindless with a grainy appearance (it can also make a rapid appearance, should you wish). Simit is a circular bread, encrusted with sesame seeds, flax or sunflower seeds. Börek is a family of filled and baked pastries made with thin, flaky dough. Hellim (aka Halloumi) Cheese is semi-hard (and kinda squeaky) and made from a mixture of goat and sheep’s milk. Its high melting point means it reacts very favourably when it’s fried or grilled. As, we think, will you.
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.
