Dining in authentic Turkish restaurants when visiting on cheap holidays to Bodrum can be tough enough, with so many unusual ingredients and unfamiliar dishes to decipher. This task only becomes trickier when you’re a vegetarian, but with a little help from Jet2holidays you can eat meat-free meals in Bodrum, and they won’t be just plates of chips.
If it’s a small snack or appetiser that you’re craving on holidays to Bodrum, yaprak dolmasi, or stuffed grape vine leaves, will be perfect. They are usually stuffed with rice and vegetables and served cold, but as they’re often eaten with meat don’t forget to ask ‘Et var mi?’ (Is there meat?) before you tuck in.
Good Eats Without Meat
You may also notice that many street food vendors in and around Bodrum sell kumpir, which is a good old jacket potato! From cheese to sweetcorn and tasty olives the kumpir stands will have plenty of great lunchtime options for vegetarians visiting on cheap holidays to Bodrum with Jet2holidays.
When dinner time rolls around you’ll be surprised how spoiled for choice you are with vegetarian options, from ezo gelin corba (lentil and tomato soup) to pides, which is Turkish pizza. To make sure you’re ordering vegetarian toppings, tell your server that you are ‘vejeteryen’ to prevent any surprises when your food arrives.
