Turkish food can be enjoyed in many restaurants in and around the resort of Oludeniz. There is something for everybody, with a good choice of meat, fresh fish and many tasty vegetarian options.
The delightful holiday town of Fethiye gives a great option to try some true traditional cuisine, with a good choice of simple Turkish establishments and a number of top end fish restaurants along the harbor side.
Meze is the traditional way to start a meal. Have a selection of small plates, fried fish, dips and with meat or vegetable selections. If your eating with a group of friends or family this is truly a great way to start the meal. However some people just have a larger selection of Meze and do bother with the main courses.
Main Meals are a mix of fish or meat. Tasty spicey kebabs can be enjoyed in many restaurants and snack bars. Fresh fish is a joy when grilled over an open BBQ, washed down with some local Turkish wines. Meat is also very popular, the lamb is quite delicious when oven backed. There are a number of traditional casseroles and stews that can be found in some of the restaurants offering typical local dishes.
Pastries and desserts for many are the most important part of the meal. Turkish desserts are mainly very sweet, with thin layers of pastry soaked in honey [ Baklava ] or deep fried dough balls again soaked in honey. Nice with a little ice cream. Sliced fresh fruit can be a nice way to finish a hearty Turkish meal.
International style Restaurants are available in various places throughout this holiday town. Italian Bistro’s, Pizza restaurants and Chinese cuisine can all be enjoyed should you have the need for a change from Turkish food.
