1- Meto Dondurma

The Turkish ice-cream culture is just as diverse as the cultures that inhabit it. Turks have tried to keep up with their European counterparts by adding more flavors and toppings, but they still maintain that classic style of dondurma which has been around for centuries. The word literally translates into “block of ice” in Turkish, while the dessert itself may be similar to Greek yogurt or Indian kulfi. What sets it apart is often a honey-like syrup called kaymak, though some people add fruit like strawberries or bananas on top. Regardless of how you take your meto dondurma, this iced treat will make any day better!
Meto Dondurma is one such shop that offers traditional Turkish flavors like pistachio, watermelon, and rose petal along with more international favorites like mango, hazelnut, or chocolate. It is easy to see why this small corner store in Ankara attracts so many customers every day
