Across the numerous street food vendors in Marmaris, there’s plenty of variety in delectable dishes. Known all over the world, Turkish cuisine is a must-try. The unfamiliar-sounding treat called kokorec is made of spiced offal (belly, intestines, or other edible meat found inside the animal’s cavity) wrapped in a lamb’s intestine to disguise the taste. It might sound hard to stomach, but if you’re curious, you should try it!

Gevrek is a quick, cheap breakfast snack often eaten before drinking coffee. Street vendors make this Turkish specialty at all times of the day, proving to be a convenient snack. Gevrek is similar to bread, known as simit, and is even shaped similarly. You can get one with strong Turkish coffee or Turkish tea. In addition, pancakes in Marmaris are called gozleme and can be bought on the street; the dough is freshly cooked with endless delicious fillings. Of course, Turkish kebabs made with a variety of meats and spices are prevalent throughout the city.
