Sule Shangri-la, Yangon Brings Back The “Flavours Of Turkey” At Café Sule

From 31 October to 6 November 2017, Café Sule will be home to Turkish cuisine, said to be one of the appetising and rich cuisines in the world. From aromatic desserts to robust grilled meats, returning guest chef Ali Toprak, joined by Chef Serkan Akca, will lay out a dinner spread of this colourful cuisine for a true “Flavours of Turkey” feast.

While Turkish cuisine can be traced back to the Ottoman Empire in the 17th century, it is a cuisine that has a long and deep-rooted past – a colourful mosaic based on and enriched by the many recipes and cooking techniques of many ancient cultures. The country’s position between the Far East and the Mediterranean Sea allowed the Turks to gain complete control of major trade routes. This, coupled with an ideal topography that allows plants and animals to flourish, has helped the region develop and sustain a lasting and influential cuisine. Owing to its variety of recipes, Turkish cuisine is today considered one of three main cuisines of the world.

In an exclusive media preview attended by H.E. Kerem Divanlioglu, resident ambassador of Turkey to Myanmar, Chefs Ali and Serkan, both from Shangri-La Bhosphorus, Istanbul, presented some of the cuisine’s loved dishes:

Mucver Dolna - Zucchini fritter or vegetable pancake. It is a Turkish favourite and is served as a hot appetizer, accompanied by a yogurt dip.

Köpoğlu - This plate belongs to the Turkish Mezze selection which is basically just a starter or appetizer. The creamy delight of fried eggplant, tomato, and yogurt is said to leave one eating it as a starter and main course.

Manti – Ravioli stuffed with minced lamb. The word manti is derived from “mantu” meaning dumplings. It is a shared culinary heritage that the nomadic Turkish tribes brought with them when they travelled from Central Asia towards Anatolia, today’s Turkey, during the 13th century.

Kebabs – Plain or marinated meat either stewed or grilled. Nearly every district of Anatolia has its own kebab specialty. Lamb is the basic meat of the Turkish kitchen and “sis kebab” (pieces of lamb threaded on a skewer and grilled over charcoal) is now known in many countries around the world.

“I am happy to return to Yangon. As before, we have prepared a menu that will illustrate Turkish cuisine’s pure quality. The variety, yet simplicity of the dishes, plus the quality of the ingredients will guarantee a delicious meal for Café Sule’s regular diners,” said Chef Ali, who is ecstatic to be back. Historical relations between Turkey and Myanmar go further back to the 19th century. The Ottoman empire and kingdom of Burma had honorary consulates in each other’s territories in the 19th and 20th centuries.

“Flavours of Turkey” will run only for dinner at US$32 nett. For table reservations, guests may call (95 1) 242 828 extension 6421 or 6422 or send an email to
