Where and What to Eat in Konya?

Where and What to Eat in Konya?

People of Konya generally do not fill up if they do not eat meat in their meals. It is no joke, almost all the people of Konya that I have known until today (although it is open to exceptions) yes, are fond of meat. This is why the most famous dishes are etli ekmek (flat bread baked with ground meat, peppers, onions, and tomatoes), tirit (a traditional rice dish that is made with meat and various vegetables) and okra soup. I say try these three legendary tastes. Because you will notice that you have never actually eaten meat before! You will agree with what I said after you wait for jellifying that meat and see cooking in a few different ways.

Now I will write about where you should taste these three magnificent tastes. Meanwhile, I say taste local delicacies such as çebiç, su böreği (water pastry with feta cheese filling), fırın kebab (oven-cooked meat), sac arası, Mevlana böreği, arabaşı soup, höşmerim dessert, papara (dish of dry bread and broth), kaygana (pancake), sac böreği, dilber dudağı (lip shaped sweet pastry), batırık (burghul salad with walnuts), düğün pilav and etli topalak soup in Konya.
