Diana Suen Discovers Antalya

Earlier this month, serial traveller Diana Suen visited Turkey for the first time, spending a few days in Antalya before moving on to Istanbul.  She wrote a fantastic post about her experiences in both cities, and it was nice to read about Antalya from her perspective, especially since she enjoys discovering new food.

Diana’s description of trying an Adana kebab for the first time brought back a lot of memories of my own early experiences with Turkish cuisine, and although I’ve never tried Sultanyar specifically, her description of their food as ‘mind-blowing’ echoes what I’ve heard countless visitors say upon trying authentic Turkish food for the first time (as opposed to what is often mislabelled ‘authentic Turkish’ in other countries).  There’s no shortage of great kebabs in Antalya; any visitor to the city would be lucky to try their first real kebab here.

    Thanks for the kind note and the mention! I still dream about the delicious Turkish food we had while there. Also, this is a great site and I wish I had known about it earlier. Great tips on the festival and partially freezing peaches!

    • Thanks, Diana! As you can see, we’re only just getting started, but hoping to ramp up quickly! Next time you’re planning a trip to Antalya, be sure to let us know. 🙂
