Turkish Breakfast

Before today, I have never thought that I would ever have a Turkish Breakfast. Thanks to my culinary buddy, we ventured out to Güllüoglu Baklava Cafe, and I was able to try some new dishes that I have never seen or heard of before. He explained to me that Turkish Breakfast is usually pretty elaborate and that it would probably be the heaviest meal of the day while dinner being the lightest. So like a true food explorer, we ordered a variety of dishes off the menu and had a little feast.

We had a simit (Left), which is a turkish style bagel, skinner with a slightly different texture. Unlike bagels it was less dense and a little easier to chew since it wasn't as glutenous. To complement it, we ordered the Menemen (Below), which I guess to me somewhat resembles a scrambled omelet. It was a very good dip with the plain simits that we had ordered.

Turkish Tea:
I think it may be the same as orange pekoke tea
 SuBoregi (Right) , layers of phyllo dough laced with feta cheese

Pogaca (below) : Buttery bread, similar to brioche, filled with cheese
