Turkish cuisine is for meat-lovers, especially those who savor tender, marinated meats on a stick that are grilled to perfection. If this sounds familiar, you're a 'kebab person' and deserve to know much more about the world of Turkish kebabs.

But navigating through so many delicious choices can be difficult, especially if you're just starting out. That's why I've made it easy for you with my latest article The Five Most Popular Turkish Kebabs.

It previews the best-selling kebabs you can find in every meat restaurant and fireside grills in Turkey. Although they are the most popular kebabs, I hesitate to say they are the best.

This is completely subjective. There are so many delectable kebabs to choose from, it's impossible to say for sure. That's because when it comes to kebabs, there's something for everyone in Turkey.

For hardcore kebab fans, anything with chunks of lean lamb or beef will do. There's also chicken kebabs if you prefer.

If you're a fish and seafood fan, how about swordfish kebabs or jumbo shrimp kebabs? Even vegetarians have the chance to enjoy the smoky, grilled flavor of kebabs. Some of the most delicious vegetarian kebabs I've tried are from Turkish kitchens.

So if you're ready to move deeper into the world of Turkish kebabs, start out with the five most popular kebab dishes and take it from there.
