Seems like it’s a common theme for working in Turkey…
Edit: Those of us who are vegetarians traveling the world have some interesting situations that we find ourselves in. I’ve found that Turkey isn’t so much a vegetarian friendly country ( eating out). You need to ask if it has meat and if it was cooked in meat juice, etc. Just because it doesn’t say there is no meat doesn’t mean they won’t take it upon themselves to put some in there.
