Famous for: Pottery kebabs – these are a specialty from the Cappadocia region of Turkey

  • I did some research on the best pottery kebabs in Cappadocia and the restaurant I decided to go from my research was actually a restaurant called Dibek. I made a reservation at Dibek by emailing the restaurant and received a confirmation from them saying the reservation has been confirmed. However, when I arrived at the restaurant, the restaurant was closed! It turns out they are closed on Sundays (the day I made my reservation was for Sunday lunch). So I had to start searching for a different restaurant to have pottery kebabs. Luckily I had wifi from the cafe I went to earlier for Turkish coffee and from my on the spot research, came across Old Cappadocia Cafe & Restaurant near by. This was the only place I tried pottery kebabs, so I don’t have a comparison with other restaurants, but compared to regular kebabs, I thought these tasted better! Also, it’s a fun experience watching the server crack the pottery jar
