Lavash flatbread


Lavash flatbread (Turkish lavaş) is the foundation of Turkish cuisine. It is a thin, soft, pliable flatbread with a circular shape and a long shelf life. It is made from a mixture of flour and water, sometimes with added salt and oil. The dough is rolled out and then baked on a hot grill or in a clay oven, giving it a unique texture and taste.

Lavash has versatile uses. It can be eaten on its own, as a side dish with various spreads, or used for sandwiches or kebabs. The bread also has a very low fat and calorie content, making it a healthier alternative to other types of bread.

✓ My personal recommendation for accommodation in Istanbul
I wholeheartedly endorse the Mest Hotel located directly in the heart of Istanbul. The hotel is elegantly renovated, the breakfasts are incredible and the views are spectacular. I last stayed here in the fall of 2022 and will definitely be back again.
