-- Walking through the Uzun Carşı (Long Market) in Antakya
, the capital of southern Turkey’s Hatay region, is a veritable feast for the senses. Among shoe shops, cobblers and barbers, künefe
makers drizzle batter on a hot spinning surface to make the threadlike dough for the cheese-filled dessert, grocers watch over mountains of fragrant spices, and bakers slide tepsi kebabı
, the region’s most famous meat dish, into roaring wood-fired ovens alongside a myriad of savory flat breads.
