    Salep, a beverage for gods!

    by Askla Updated Jul 4, 2014

    After you have seen the Four-legged Minaret just take the little street to the into the left. After a few metres there is a door on the left. If you enter here you can try a real taste sensation! I absolutely don't like warm/hot milk but I had to try the salep they had on offer since I recognised the name, I don't know from where. Salep consists of warm milk with a powder of grinded orchid root (of two different species) and toped with cinnamon powder. It sounded interesting and tasted, well, HEAVENLY! I could easily book a flight back to Diyarbakir just to get another cup of salep and then directly return home again.

    Sedat Ustanın Yeri: Local kebabs

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I always try to eat with the locals when I travel in the Middle East and Diyarabakir was no exception. You will find numerous local kebab restaurants throughout the old and new city. I'm sure they are all quite good, but we chose this one because it was time to eat when we saw it. It is called Sedat Ustanın Yeri and is located on Gazi Caddesi, the main thoroughfare in the walled city, closer to Mardin Gate.

    Sahlep: Winter warmth!

    by MM212 Written Mar 30, 2014

    This is not a restaurant review… If visiting Diyarbakır in winter, you must try Sahlep. It is a thick, sweet milk drink with cinnamon that isn't only delicious, but warms you up in bitter cold weather. This is a tradition that exists in Syria as well. We found this vendor on Gazi Caddesi, the main thoroughfare in the walled city, close to the northern gate (Dağkapı).

    There is a little pastane on the main street, just next to the bazaar, which is an excellent place to go for breakfast. The owners were very friendly, and sat with us to chat (a bit of a one way process, as my turkish was non-existant then!)...later, they closed their cafe for a couple of hours and took us on a tour round Diyarbakir, showing us churches and mosques that we would never have found otherwise, and accompanying us along the Diyarbakir walls.

    Favorite Dish: Tea or coffee with a cake or seven.
