I really love rose-flavored foods. It's too bad they aren't popular in America.

I'm very fortunate that I was born in a first world country and didn't grow up eating sand food all the time and thinking that it was something special.

I had an assyrian friend and I ate at their house a few times. It was really good but not mind blowing imo

It's just an opinion about food.

Middle Eastern food is for the most part mediocre.

/pol/ isn't even good at racism. This is like calling Czechs "fjord people."

As a Turkish person I would suggest you guys look into all the meals that have vegetables too. I know when people think of middle eastern food they think of kebab and they are really nice too, it kind of gets boring eating them every day so I suggest you guys look into dishes that use vegetables as a main ingredient OR all the olive oil stuff you can eat while they are cold.

Here are some of my suggestions:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarma_(food)
This just requires expertise to fold like sushi but once you get the hang of it you can roll rice, minced meat etc. into anything like lettuce, grape leaves, even a leek's outer rings

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%B0mam_bay%C4%B1ld%C4%B1
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alinazik_kebab
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moussaka
Basically anything Turkish with eggplants is delicious

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menemen_(food)
God tier breakfast with egg as a main ingredient, too bad you murricans have sweeter tasting bread otherwise its really good to eat it with a "regular" Turkish bread thats fresh out from the oven.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kofta
These little niggers, there are hundreds of variety among them.
I really like the "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulu_k%C3%B6fte"s lemon-egg sauce version

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%B6rek
Dont forget all the börek varieties. Just put anything into a filo pastry and cook it using different methods and you got yourself a börek.

oh and theres like a million dessert and kebab recipes that are really good but the unsung heroes of the Turkish cousine are the vegetable meals and stews that families eat on a regular basis.

I don't know menemen but I'm crazy about shakshouka, what's the difference ?
>>
>>7301955
hey grey wolf tell us something about the recipes for suleyman. was it thousands of different dishes?
>>
>>7301803
He's right though. I lived in KSA for about a year and never had anything that made me think, "omg I wish we had this back home".
>>
>>7301803
falafel and hummus is good though
>>
>>7303279
Arab food is shit though, this thread is about Turkish and Iranian food m8.
>>
>>7303279
seriously, not even the coffee?
>>
>>7303287
whats the difference?
>>
>>7300136
Anyone that can give me a decent chicken shawarma recipe i can cook from home can fuck my gf everyday, ive tried 10 different recipes and none of them are great

No fucking allspice or cloves or fucking old middleaged jew woman recipes from online please
>>
>>7303175
in menemen the eggs are scrambled and mixed up with the veg, whereas in shakshouka they are poached in the sauce

similar flavours though
>>
>>7303297
Arabs are arabs

Turks are Turks

Iranians are Iranian

the clue is in the name
>>
>>7303319
But Iranians and turks are also arabs.
They all look alike, they live in desserts and worship muhamad.
>>
>>7303404
Mohammed is the prophet retard.
Muslims do not worship him.
>>
>>7303292
The coffee is very strong and bitter. I'm not much of a coffee drinker to begin with though, so I can't really make a good judgment there.
>>
>>7301955
Thanks for sharing some of your culture, I greatly appreciate.
>>
any good cookbooks you can recommend for this type of food?
>>7301955

Just found the best shawarma spot in my city
>>
>>7303297
Turks and Iranians actually have culture.

I live and work in the middle east and travel in the region a lot for work. Often I go to "best of" places recommended by clients, concierge, internet and others.

A LOT of it riffs on the same stuff in the Levant and/or is heavily influenced by India in regards to the Gulf.

Same goes for the 'stans. Not to say they don't have differences but there's very much a common thread.

In my experience, there is either 0 or 1/2 establishments that try and compete on pure absolute quality. There is not a culture of refinement that you would get elsewhere.

In summary, "had one; had it all" attitudes apply here. The main impacts in taste are where crops are grown and it is a world of opaque distribution locally.

If you wish to repeat omfgamazing food experiences, seriously shop around for for the right ingredients that have been grown/raised as near as possible to the culture whose recipe you are trying to emulate. I know it sounds condescending but it really does make a difference.

*Have a culture outside of Islam

Iraqi food is the shit, seriously. Kurdish food too, but I prefer Iraqi, generally speaking. It might just be because I grew up eating mostly Kurdish foods, so I got tired of it or something, but whatever.
Iraqi food is amazing and I could live off of it.
