Turkish food


Turkish people love food and consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day. For that reason, a classic Turkish breakfast, better known as “kahvalti,” is truly a sight to behold.

A typical breakfast in Turkey is rich and typically consists of cheese, butter, kaymak, tomatoes, eggs, olives, sucuk (Turkish sausage), pastirma, börek, and many other food items. Additionally, Menemen is also popular to eat for breakfast in Turkey.


Kahvaltı literally means “before coffee” and it’s the Turkish word for breakfast.

A big difference from a traditional breakfast in Europe is the fact that Turks typically drink tea for breakfast instead of drinking coffee.
