To understand culture and cuisine you should eat like a local in Bodrum.
The Friday market is the place to take a lot of vitamins; there, depending on the season, you can find fresh pears, figs, persimmon and of course oranges. Around the market there is the line with Turkish snacks and local restaurants that are perfect for a quick picnic. Afterward some stops for trying simit and peynirli börek (layers of flaky pastry, spinach and cheese) before finishing market shopping.
For the second lunch on the go, take a tub of lokma – tasty sweet balls of deep-fried dough doused in syrup. Also you can find all traditional snack sellers at the squares around the Bodrum Castle.
