Turkish food in Pakistan

This caught my jaundiced eye...

Personally i consider Turkish food as bland and uninteresting , 1001 ways to cook a kebab and they all look and taste the same...

Weeklong Turkish food festival begins in Pakistan

https://www.dailysabah.com/food/2017...ns-in-pakistan

The Indian continent and all of those countries that embrace its fantastic cuisine , having holidayed in India and sampled proper Pakistani restaurants in Wembley , Slough and the east end of London , i think that the Turks have a big and thankless task on their hands trying to interest Pakistani's in their cookery .

Re: Turkish food in Pakistan

I hope that the Pakistanis are more open to trying foreign food than Turks are. I must say that I have enjoyed Turkish food in many countries, but would not be out to try it in India or Pakistan, the local food is too good.

As much as it pains me to say but yes I too find it very bland and here in Turkish restaurants in the UK well over-priced, most of which is nothing better than a good old English stew or eastern block Stogonoff

Too true, I’m always surprised that my westernized son-in-law in Trabzon invariably orders the same food every time we go out together.

Prawns I can understand on religious grounds but sushi, pasta etc - let alone eels & fish & chips!

Little wonder there is such a dearth of international restaurants in Turkey.

Re: Turkish food in Pakistan

Turkish restaurants are getting popular in East London, I have seen a lot popping up and full of mainly Asian families, maybe the newer generations don't want heavily spiced food?

Re: Turkish food in Pakistan

I must admit, when traveling alone for business purposes I often used to eat in Turkish restaurants all round Europe. I enjoyed the familiar surroundings and consistent food, also it was easier to communicate!

I took my wife to London a few years ago to show her the joys of true Brit fish & chips (yes, I do have an unfulfilled F&C fetish) and every shop we found was run by Turks, sooo disappointing

Re: Turkish food in Pakistan

We had a Turkish restaurant open near us in surrey , sadly the Turkish guy who ran it only had experience of serving food in turkey.

For the British market the portions were small , not very tasty and expensive .

It soon closed.

Been there, my advice......don't bother.

Not sure if you can give a restaurant half a star rating but if you can, thats what they'd get from me.

Turkish food in Turkey? City restaurants or round a Turks home.
