Hi the shop is at the bottom of Karanfil next to the new posh dress shop. Did'nt get chance to taste it myself Lynne as we were all going to Julies for christmas lunch and i had to rush back to UK at the last minute, but i heard it was very tasty. Will try and get some prices for you next time we pass.

called in here at the weekend while in Akyaka and the pork sausages and bacon are frozen and come from Italy. Bacon is 30TL a kilo and sausage 25TL a kilo[if i've got the prices wrong i'm sure akyaka's friend will correct me!!!!!] and he hopes to have ham and pork chops later on.

I find this rather sad - don't we go to Turkey to experience Turkey? There are already far too many places offering an 'English Breakfast'.....

It is a very difficult balance - I fully appreciate your viewpoint as a resident, but if the import shop becomes a success, then suddenly everywhere is importing British food (albeit from Italy), and before you know it, Akyaka is a mini-Marmaris attracting visitors accordingly.

Which is presumably not why you moved there in the first place!

In fairness when I have ever visited the import shop in Marmaris any other customers are not the typical Marmaris visitor.

I'd be surprised if Aykaka would have enough business to sustain an import shop. Time will tell. My kilo of back bacon every 6 months will certainly not pay their rent!!

Sorry but i have to disagree, i dont think Akyaka will ever become a "mini-marmaris", like i pointed out in the last post its just nice to have a little bit of England now and again, we certainly dont eat out and we eat Turkish food at home all the time, and you would be suprised at the Turkish people i know that have used the shop lol.

Have to say I'd probably only use it in an ' emergency' as we usually bring plently with us for the time we are there. Can see it will be useful for the ex pats but they won't make a fortune from it I shouldn't think as you can get your bacon ' fix' with an english breakfast when you feel the need. xx Confused

I agree with all Jan's comments on this subject.
As a "long stay tourist" as opposed to a "resident expat" I think that the availability of speciality foods, condiments, sauces & spices that aren't always availlable in Kippa, Tansas or Dia to enable us to cook and eat what we enjoy, whether it be Indian, Chinese or Italian is no bad thing.
During our long stays in Akyaka we tend to eat out two or three times a week and enjoy the local cuisine, however it is nice to adapt local recipes to our own taste
Now if you were talking about Mcdonalds, KFC I would certainly object!!!!

Nice to hear that you have opened a shop and are selling cheese, bacon etc. But may I know whether in your shop healthy foods are available or not? As people many times suffer from health problems and they have to face serious problems like skin problems, hair loss. Good diet is very important to maintain the beauty of the body. Especially women are cautious about the beauty treatments.
