Delicious Food & Amazing Views

Antalya Turkey

Food and More in Antalya

Our food correspondent Amy, has been travelling again – and this time from Zurich to Antalya in Turkey. Antalya is a coastal resort with an old harbour filled with fishing boats and surrounded by beautiful beaches with turquoise water.

The Turquoise Water

The area is known as the “Turquoise Coast” for the colour of its insanely turquoise blue water. It is also steeped in history and remnants of its time as a major Roman port still remain. Here you can go and see Hadrian’s Gate, built to honour the Roman emperor’s visit in 130 A.D,  the 2nd-century Hidirlik Tower, and of course explore the water front and the old town for foodie adventures.

Roman Ruins

For the historians amongst you, don’t miss out on Hadrian’s Gate. It was created in 130A.D to honour the Roman Emperor’s Visit. Part of the Roman Empire, it was founded during the Hellenistic Period (323BC – 1st Century A.D).

When people think of Turkey, one directly thinks of Istanbul… And rightfully so! Istanbul is rich in culture and delicious food; however, if you open yours eyes south of Istanbul, you will find some real foodie gems along the stunning Mediterranean Coast of Antalya! With just 15 hours in Antalya, where would you eat? Take a look and see what we discovered…

Old Town also known as Antalya Kaleiçi

Our first recommendations led us to an exquisite restaurant with a reputation for great food:

Goats Cheese and Aubergine Souffle

We were served a delightful Aubergine Souffle with melted parmesan and goats cheese and a hint of pesto sauce and a balsamic glaze to tie the flavour all together.

Cuttlefish Alle Sicula

Next we were served a wonderful mix of crispy sauteed cuttlefish gently combined with aged sweet passito, sun-dried tomato and parisienne vegetables. A perfect way to start a meal.

Lamb Tandoori

This braised lamb shoulder with a side of bourbon chickpea puree and perfectly cooked green onion with Aegean herbs was a fantastic combination of flavours.

Kebab Seraser

This dish comprised an incredibly tender braised veal tail topped with a creamy gorgonzola sauce and a sprinkle of Turkish cinnamon and anise. It was certainly one dish which I will never forget.

If breakfast or lunch is what you are after, I have the perfect place for you. Take a look here..

Börekci Tevfik

Knowing that the chef of this classic Turkish delicacy has had 85 years of experience, made it a hard one to miss. This small cafe offers two Börek creations: minced meat or cheese.

    May I suggest a particular movie? The Unbelievers.

    The film follows renowned scientists and best-selling authors Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss across the globe as they speak publicly about the importance of science and reason in the modern world – encouraging others to cast off antiquated religious and politically motivated approaches toward important current issues. Blasphemous to some, heroic to others – the weight of their message is impossible to ignore. The film also includes appearances by famed authors, performers, directors, and scientists: Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Stephen Hawking, Woody Allen, Sarah Silverman, Ricky Gervais und James Randi.

    On at Cinema Riffraff> at noon on Dec 26th, Dec 29th, Jan 2nd and Jan 5th.

    One of the first screenings in Europe, not to be missed.
