Gaya Travel Magazine team flew to Turkey’s culinary capital, Gaziantep, on Turkish Airlines. This destination is renowned for lahmacun (delicious flat-crusted pizza topped with spicy meat and herbs), baklava (Turkish pastry sweetened by sherbet, which is a light syrup made from sugar, water, and lemon juice) and kofte (meatball cooked with paste made of cracked wheat and meat then fried). Read on to know what to do in Gaziantep!
Omer Gullu is the fifth generation of the family that established the baklava brand Gulluoglu since 1871. Tip: When eating baklava, turn the piece upside down so that the bottom of the baklava hits your palate as it enters your mouth.
Try its dishes like alenazik (char-grilled smoked eggplant puree mixed with yoghurt and topped with tender lamb stew), baklava and homemade ayran (Turkish yoghurt drink) served in a bowl with ladle.
Make sure you also enjoy the kunefe(crispy cheese-filled pastry dessert).
