Eating out in Milas

In my previous post I talked about the wonderful lunch my daughter and I shared in Bodrum for my birthday.

I also mentioned that I don't eat out in restaurants that often, but one place Mr A and I often visit is Ziyafet Pide in Milas.

My daughter and I briefly visited Milas market last Tuesday, and I thought it would be a good opportunity to take her to Ziyafet Pide for lunch.  She remembers enjoying pide when she visited us  many years ago.

The pide on the plate is just one portion.  We had two.  It was accompanied by salad and roasted peppers, and we each had a cola.

Can you believe how much this cost?  Just 15 lira in total for the two of us, which is just over £5.00.  Incredible value and delicious too.

A new Lavazza coffee house has recently opened in Milas and happens to be right next door to Ziyafet Pide, so we rounded off lunch with a delicious cappuccino.

Oh what bliss to at last find somewhere in Milas to get a decent coffee!

  1. A good pide is a find indeed! And to have Lavazza coffee - well, what else do you need? It is quite my favourite coffee here.

    1. My favourite too Claudia and I haven't had one since we lived in Göreme 6 or 7 years ago, so I'm pretty excited about being able to get it in Milas.

    4. Nah I have absolutely nothing of interest to say right now-an exciting day consists of managing to sleep in til 6am, Billy doing all wees and poos on the toilet, getting through 24hrs without Jimi having a major bump to the head and actually getting a whole conversation with anyone over the age of 3. I bore myself to tears mum, I wouldn't dream of inflicting it on any other poor sod who happened to stumble across my blog. Nope, I think I will just stick to nosing at others!xxx
