Gözleme is a traditional Turkish pastry, rolled out, filled, sealed and cooked. I have seen them at several weekend markets in Sydney, like Paddington Market, The Rocks’ Market; but I have never seen them in Hong Kong before. They are very delicious, though some people may think they are a bit oily. There are a lot different Gözleme varieties, but the most common one is spanish and feta cheese. They are usually sold at around AUD$8 to AUD$10.

I first saw Gözleme at Campsie Food Festival, and there were a lot of people waiting (at least 15 people waiting), so I decided to give it a try, and I completely fell in love with them!

The Gözleme food stall at Paddington Market has some special Gözleme varieties, which I have never seen in other places, such as grilled eggplant, pumpkin, leek and a sweet cinnamon one.

I actually like all the different variety of Gözleme I have tried, but I have to say one serving is a lot, it’s best to share with your friends. One more thing, don’t forget to squeeze some lemon juice on it before enjoying them!
