It is not very cultural but if you like shopping Antalya is heaven! The leather is very cheap overthere (especially if you bargain on the price) and if you decide to buy a carpet wait till you get there! It is a custom to bargain on the prices.

vegetarian cuisine in Antalya
Hi to everyone:)
..."they often fry food in pork fat in Turkey".!!WOW!!! first,as you know that we're moslem country and therefore,we never&ever use or eat pork meals,products or its oil.
According to moslem belief,it is a big sin!!!
145. Say: "I find not in the Message received by me by inspiration any (meat) forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be dead meat, or blood poured forth, or the flesh of swine,- for it is an abomination - or, what is impious, (meat) on which a name has been invoked, other than Allah's". But (even so), if a person is forced by necessity, without willful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,- thy Lord is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (The Holy Quran-6. The Cattle (Al-Anàam)
We always use sunflower,olive,corn,nut,real butter,sesame oils or margarins(made by vegetable products),etc.
