Turquise Restaurant is located inside the SM City mall in Cagayan de Oro. Apparently, Turquoise is more than just a color. The word is actually old french for “Turkish” and this is what this unique restaurant in the city exactly offers – authentic cuisine from the land of the Turks.
Turquoise was started in December 2007 by Turks living in Cagayan de Oro City, in an attempt to share their culture and food to filipinos. When your there, don’t skip their beef and chicken kebabs, which are the best sellers. The kebabs are grilled and marinated in Turkish herbs and spices. These are put on a bed of rice and topped with lavash bread (flat bread). If carbo loading is not for you, indulge in Bakas in sizzling plate, a lanao specialty, which is smoked fish blended with spices and coconut milk. Or savor, the chili garlic shimp and Shephered beef kabap, which is marinated beef with tomato sauce and herbs.
