Yes they are haram, but restaurants near us proudly advertise that they are 'alkolsuz' but then offer crayfish and crab on the menu. Go figure

Re: Mugla Mussels

As a sprog we would collect them from the harbour as bait, strictly warned not to eat them as they were "poison" by the old salts. This has stuck with me and no amount of assurance that they are grown in clear free flowing water will convince me to imbibe. To me they will always be just bait, Buckies [Whelks] are the same, line bait.

alkolsuz = 'soft'? IE no shell?

Meanwhile there seems great aversion to sushi in Turkey - here every coffee shop, cafe & restaurant (inc Spanish, Italian, MacDonalds etc!) have what they call sushi on the menu.

Re: Mugla Mussels

Times are changing here in Turkey. The only foreign restaurant in our county town, population 200 000, is a sushi restaurant, but we reckon it will be closed in 3 months. We found coriander in the market this week. That is something we have had to grow in the past.

Re: Mugla Mussels

Interesting IA, I find the same here and in Turkey - locals seem reluctant to try new things.

In the Trabzon fish market I was shocked to see the amount of prawn & shrimp tipped to garbage.

Two years ago we had new Indian, Chinese & Turkish restaurants opening up – none lasted more than 6 months (even though they all sold both pizza & sushi!
