One of the best things about going on holiday, in my opinion, is having the opportunity to try dishes and styles of cooking that are very different to those you experience at home. If you’re something of a foodie (like I am) and looking to sample some great-tasting fare on your next break, I recommend you head to Cyprus. To put it simply, it’s a tantalising destination!
As you might expect, given the country’s location in the Mediterranean Sea, the local fare largely consists of fresh fish, sun-ripened fruit and vegetables and olive oil. While you’ll have the chance to sample a wide range of cuisine in Cyprus, especially if you are staying in a popular tourist destination like Nicosia or Ayia Napa, I always advise you try at least a few local dishes.
Staying in self-catering accommodation is perhaps the best way to experience Cyprus’s diverse and delicious food as you’ll have the freedom to eat out every night (something that you may be unlikely to do if you were staying at an all-inclusive resort). Of course, as you’ll have your own kitchen facilities you can have a go at whipping up your own versions of dishes you’ve tried. After you have taken a flight to the island – which you can do by clicking this link – you can treat yourself to the specialities below.
