Meyhane-i Kültür is tucked away in a side street off the main Nazık Kemal square
just along from the Twin Churches but is well-known in the Walled City of Famagusta. Easily recognised
with its offbeat décor: blue chairs hang from a wall, plant pots adorn the palm trees, this is a
favourite spot with the locals. Prepare yourself for a feast here: first huge bowls of elegantly-prepared
salads are brought to your table, then 13 cold meze are brought out. Meze is the name of a number of
small dishes served before or as part of a meal, common in Eastern Mediterranean cuisine, and often served with a drink.
These can be yoghurt dishes, creamy hummus, delicious Circassian walnut and chicken salad, the spread varies from day to day
according to what is in season.
Then, just as you are starting to slow down, the hot starters start to arrive, take your time, there will
be nine of these and four types of kebabs, grilled halloumi, juicy grilled mushrooms, savoury pastries,
then succulent morsels of grilled meats, chicken, sausage... At the end of your lavish dinner, relax
over a beautifully presented fruit platter. A joyous meal at very attractive prices..
