What to Eat?
When you come to Gaziantep, if you wish you may begin your breakfast with Beyran, a local lamb and rice soup, or perhaps a lamb’s liver kebab (cağırtlak), or a sweet Katmer pastry with ground pistachio nuts and plenty of cream. Be sure to try Yuvarlama, a local home-made dish that is often served to guests and always on Bayram (Eid al-Fitr) mornings, dolmat, lahmacun with lots of vegetables and garlic, and kebabs – according to the season these may be with aubergine, fresh garlic, onions, keme- a type of truffle, or loquats. We are confident you will not find such a tasty Ali Nazik Kebab anywhere other than in Gaziantep. Besides all these dishes, don’t leave without trying Baklava, Havuç Dilimi Baklava, Şöbiyet, Dolama, and Antepfıstıklı Kadayıf.
