Turkish cuisine impresses with its diversity and abundance of products, thus it will appeal to absolutely any gourmet. Meat, all kinds of cereals and vegetables – this is not the entire range. And oriental delights famous all over the world are essentials .

Turkish cuisine is characterized by a wide abundance of delicious food, and comprises a balanced and healthy diet. Unlike Italian and French cuisine, there are no dominant dishes. At first glance, the dishes seem simple, but  they are made using secret and ancient recipes of Orient.

“Kebab” is a common name for meat dishes, which are cooked on a special spit. For example,  İskender kebab is a mixture of beef and lamb, seasoned with yoghurt sauce. It is served on a traditional Turkish pita bread.

What about barbecue or shish kebab?  Every foodie loves to pamper himself with that dish.  Galata restaurant-cafe offers a wide range of fried chicken, veal, lamb cooked on an open fire.

Halal products include:

  • river and sea fish;
  • ice cream;
  • nuts and cereals;
  • soft drinks;
  • berries;
  • Halal meat (rabbit, duck,  horse meat, beef, camel, chicken, turkey, buffalo, venison, goose, flesh of goat, ostrich meat, lamb);
  • candies and other sweets;
  • vegetables and fruits;
  • cheeses and dairy products;
  • and other things that do not fall under the category of “prohibited”.

How the Halal meat differs from normal?

In the production of “permitted” meat products the following rules are the must:

  • thorough quality control at all stages of production;
  • animals must be healthy, fed by only natural food (without supplements prohibited);
  • before slaughter a special prayer is pronounced;
  • a slaughter is carried out exclusively by cutting the neck, namely the carotid artery;
  • blood is removed in a natural way, so that the meat is tender, and the presence of dangerous microorganisms is excluded;
