All of us know Turkish cuisine with world-famous generosity called “all inclusive”, as well as Turkish kebab, tea and, of course, Turkish coffee. But in Northern Cyprus there are much more gastronomic delights and traditions than on the mainland, and the cuisine is more varied and interesting. Firstly, Cyprus is still an island, so the cult of deliciously cooked fresh fish and other seafood as an analogue of Greek meze is something you should definitely try. In second place are Turkish Cypriot meat dishes with lavash and ayran, the portions are so huge that it's simply impossible to eat them. There are also very good restaurants of European cuisine - apparently, the remnants of British influence. You can also add cold coffee on the seashore, fresh fruits and salads to the interesting things - everything that we love and appreciate the Mediterranean for.
Settlers who have been living in Cyprus for many years helped to compile a list of the best, most delicious and original restaurants. Top establishments from cyprus-faq.com:
The restaurant "Saint Tropez" is in the lead. Gorgeous interior, impeccable French cuisine. Connoisseurs recommend trying pancakes in brandy and orange juice. The price tag for Northern Cyprus is high.
"Shell Wi". The freshest fish and seafood. Exquisite dishes, a large selection of hot and cold snacks. Beautiful interior. The price tag is high.
