Meal Times in Antalya

As it was in the old times, people have three meals a day.

Traditionally, in the summer and in the winter filled yufka1 bread rolled up, soups, vegetables and fruits are eaten in the mornings, in the summer and in the winter. Even though soup is still eaten, people also have cheese, olives, butter, and jam, and drink tea for breakfast.

People have a light lunch prepared using the leftovers from dinner the night before. Since men usually come home in the evening, the most delicious dishes are prepared for dinner. Like the other places in Anatolia, Antalya has a meal called "yat geber ekmegi"2. At this meal before going to bed fruit is usually eaten in summer, and nuts are eaten in winter.

1 Yufka is thinly rolled and baked bread on a metal sac (similar to Chinese wok)

2 Since it is not a meal time, they call it "eat, sleep and die bread". Because they are already full, it has a humorous connatation.
