Discovering Açma: The Turkish Pastry You Need to Try

Açma is a beloved Turkish pastry that has been enjoyed for generations. This delicious treat is similar in appearance to a soft bagel, but with a unique taste and texture that sets it apart. Açma comes in a variety of flavors, from savory cheese and olive to sweet and nutty sesame seed varieties.

One of the great things about Açma is that it's a perfect grab-and-go snack, making it ideal for busy people who are always on the move. You can find Açma being sold by street vendors all over Türkiye, making it an essential part of the country’s food culture.

If you're looking to try Açma for the first time, I highly recommend the olive tapenade variety. The combination of soft pastry and salty, savoury olives is truly irresistible!

Whether you're a local or a visitor, Açma is a must-try for anyone who loves exploring new flavors and experiencing different cultures through food. So, next time you're in Türkiye, make sure to grab an Açma and enjoy the delightful taste of this Turkish classic. 

If you can't make it to Türkiye, don't worry! You can still satisfy your craving for Açma by ordering from the website. I offer a wide range of Açma flavors, including the popular olive-filled variety that I can't get enough of. So why not give it a try and experience the delicious taste of Açma for yourself?

Tip: When it comes to enjoying Açma, there's no denying that pairing it with a cup of Turkish tea is the ultimate way to experience the flavors and culture of Turkey. Turkish tea, or çay as it's called in Turkish, is a staple in Turkish cuisine and is often enjoyed alongside savoury treats like Açma.
