Can't go away from Turkey with out thinking of all the great food we enjoyed. They serve tons of veggies ALL the time, but also lots of lamb, and chicken, and fish, especially along the coast. We had a great calamari meal on the Gulet...with the most succulent calamari I have ever had. Some lamb and Chicken were actually cooked in coals for hours. The clay pot tops were covered in bread dough lids, which baked along with the meat and provided just the right amount of cover. Pomegranate stands are all over the streets, with fresh squeezed pomegranate juice a delight to drink. Not sweetened, either.
