Turkish Food: Simple
Yet varied. Good tasting at
I like the simplicity of Greek food but perhaps due to its uncomplicated nature it’s pretty boring in Greater Vancouver. For the most part, there’s very little differentiating one Greek restaurant from another in the city. The menus and executions of the dishes seem nearly identical.
In an effort to find something similar but more exciting, I’ve started to sample Turkish cuisine. Turkey and Greece have a long history with one another (“This is Sparta!” or if you old like me “Istanbul (not Constantinople)”). As a result there are similarities between the two cultures’ food. However, there seems to a slightly different spice palate used and a greater variety of dishes to try with Turkish cuisine.
