Soups are prepared from chicken, thyme, lentils, egg yolks with greens and lemon. Traditional salad ingredients are vegetables, chicken, cheese, olives, seafood.

Poultry, lamb, pork, beef, and fish are cooked, but the choice of meat dishes is much wider. Meat is roasted, stewed in pots in the oven, or cooked on the grill. Inhabitants of Northern Cyprus do not eat pork.

Fish is fried or grilled. Shrimp and mussels are usually frozen, while local varieties of fish, small squid, and crabs are fresh. Sometimes the catch is put on display so that the customer can choose the fish they like.

Tips and reviews

The prices of food in Cyprus seem high to some, while other tourists consider them average European. But no one has ever complained about the taste of food, and the generosity of Cypriots, manifested in their huge portions and compliments from the chef, invariably lifts the mood.

To choose a good tavern, you need to look for the ones where the locals eat. You can also just walk around and take a closer look at the visitors. Tourist cafes also cook delicious, but the prices are high, so go farther away from the coast.

Portions are such that one dish for two is enough – especially the meze. Otherwise, no recommendations – just try and enjoy the amazing taste of the national Cypriot cuisine.
