van otlu peynir

We can say that food is a very big part of Van’s cultural heritage. Because it was home to many different civilizations throughout history it has a very rich local food selection. The city is famous for its breakfasts, the tables of which are crammed with all sorts of different foods from tomatoes and olives to bread and honey and jam to dried and seasoned meat. The most important piece of this breakfast is the ‘’otlu peynir’’, which is a local cheese made with local herbs. They have many different meals made out of meat or vegetables you can choose from depending on your diet preference. Locals also have various ways to cook ‘’chub’’, the local fish habituated in Van Lake.
