Turkey is nirvana for meat lovers. Shish kebab is one of the country’s culinary gems, renowned around the world for its succulent flavour, with some of the planet’s best and spiciest kebabs derived from Turkey’s south-eastern provinces. Skewers are threaded with chunks of marinated lamb or beef and turned over on a coal fire to deliver a truly distinct taste.

Travel to Turkey and sink your teeth into one of the famed juicy grilled kebabs. Restaurants dedicated to the dish can be found across the county, each serving up a unique take on the heavenly shish kebab.

Sachertorte In Vienna

One morsel of sachertorte is all you need to experience its mind-blowing excellence. Dense chocolate sponge is layered with apricot jam and encased in a smooth, glossy dark chocolate.

This indulgent cake is one of Vienna’s iconic dishes and is taken so seriously that the city’s two main producers once fought a nine-year battle over it, known as the ‘cake war’. Rivals Hotel Sacher and Demel Café argued over the right to call theirs the ‘original’ between 1954 and 1963, with the former eventually coming out victorious. Take a bite out of the dessert at Hotel Sacher, where founder Franz Sacher first whipped up the sweet treat in 1832.

Baba ganoush in Dubai

First and foremost a Levantine dish, baba ganoush has since found foodie fame in Dubai. Eggplant is baked and broiled over an open flame to give it a smoky taste before being peeled, mashed and combined with seasoning.

The best place to try this lip-smacking dish is Al Hallab, which can be found opposite Dubai Creek Golf Club. Here, it’s served with warm, home-cooked Arabic bread, full of flavour and lightly dusted with cinnamon.
