Turkey - Food Guide for Travelers

Chicken and lamb gyros wrapped in pita
Traditional Turkish tea served with most meals, along with a piece of Turkish candy (aka Turkish delight)
Typical breakfast from a hostel in Turkey - bread, eggs, cheese and fresh vegetables
Beautiful fruit stand - apples, oranges and pomegranates
Stacks of Turkish treats with various nuts mixed in
Baklava with an abundance of pistachio filing
Random dessert assortment seen through a shop window
Pide - Turkish version of a long pizza, though usually served without the cheese, baked in a traditional brick oven.  Mine had minced/ground beef and Maria's had minced chicken.
A fruit stand near Galata Tower
Finally, someone beat the US in gluttony!  Bucket Size fries = king size + king size + medium.  Wow.
