So, what makes Turkish cuisine?
Well, we mentioned that Turkish cuisine has, over the many, many years since its inception, been influenced by quite a few things, so naturally the ingredients it uses are varied. Turkish restaurants in Melbourne will make equal use of meat as well as veg, and you’ll often find that dishes are built around one particular thing. A lamb chop may take centre stage, sliced zucchini may be the name at the top of the bill, or delicate kofte may be the main attraction, but whichever way your dish is inclined, the point is that you can expect big flavours that are honest and unashamed. Of course, this isn’t to say the Turkish kitchen is boring. Quite the opposite, in fact, as any plate at any Turkish restaurant in Melbourne will be loaded with more fresh salad more zesty sauces than you care to shake a stick at.
