  • When it comes to exploring a city’s authentic dining scene, while the stomach should ideally serve as the best compass, the truth is that it’s hard to find your way without good local advice. That’s where Culinary Backstreets’ Culinary Walks come in. Our small group walks lead visitors on an educating eating binge through a city’s lesser-seen historic side streets and authentic markets, visiting countless hard-to-find culinary gems and, in between bites, a select number of untouristed historic monuments. In today’s world, a city’s culinary scene is the most significant and accessible repository of local culture. Eating locally and authentically has become the easiest–and tastiest–route to getting a sense of a place’s real traditions. Let us show you the way.

Ankara may be Turkey’s political center and Istanbul its cultural and economic one, but ask Turks what their country’s culinary capital is and the answer will invariably be the same: Gaziantep.

An ancient city not far from Turkey’s southern border, a meeting point between the Arab Middle East and Turkish Anatolia, Gaziantep over the centuries has developed a culinary culture that is deeply rooted in the rhythm of the agricultural lands surrounding it and that is maintained with great pride and honor by the city’s cooks and food makers. Gaziantep is also the source for many of Turkish cuisine’s iconic dishes – the city’s famous baklava is without compare and its kebabs are truly works of art, the standard by which all others are measured.
