Simit & Koulouri

Our Turkish and Greek friends found a new topic to fight; Simit or Koulouri. Let’s start with the definition of these words from WikiPedia: Simit (Turkish), Aramaic qeluro/qelora, koulouri (Greek: κουλούρι), đevrek (Serbian: ђеврек), gjevrek (Macedonian: ѓеврек), gevrek (Bulgarian: геврек), covrig (Romanian: covrig) (the last four, from “gevrek” in Turkish, meaning “crisp”, which is, in […]

Kardak & Imia

Today is the 15th anniversary of the Imia/Kardak Crisis where Turkey and Greece came very close to war. In my opinion (I know some Greeks and Turks might be angry about what I will just write), it was total bullshit. It was arranged by “Gun Salesmen” of two countries (of course we are talking about […]

Kurabiye & Kourabiedes

Now, that is an easy one. Kourabiedes (Κουραμπιές) is a Greek butter cookies which is mostly done in Christmas time. It is kind of a must-have things of Christmas. When I heard the name for the first time I was confused about it. So, I calmly ask, – “Which one?”. The reply was more confused, […]

Tavla & Tavli

In last years I had many discussions about, Tavla or Tavli or even Backgammon if you like, in Greece. People in Greece are also very into Tavli as in Turkey. In this article, I am unrevealing the immortal discussion about where the Tavla comes from and what the frack we are talking about when we […]

Nah & Na

Türkler ve Yunanların sinirlenince yaptıkları bir kaç ortak nokta var. Sinire sinirle karşılık vermek bunlardan biri. Nihayetinde konuyu bağlamak için yapılan el hareketi benzemese de bu hareketi yaparken çıkartılan ses aynı. Nah / Na; yani Yunancadan ‘burada, al işte’ Turkish hand version of ‘Na’. Even they look quite different you combine them with the same […]

Rakı & Raki

Yeni Raki MarkasıBrand Name New Rakı Anasonlu ÇipuroCıpuro with Anason (τσίπουρο με γλυκάνισο) Ben büyük bir Rakı hayranıyım. Tüm Akdenizde onlarca çeşit Rakı yapılıyor. Türkiye’nin kendi özgü tadı, Türk Rakısı, anasonlu ve su katıldığında renk değiştiren yapısıyla yıllardır pazarda olan YENİ RAKI.   I am a big fan of Rakı. In all Mediterranean dozens of […]

Lokum & Lokumi

Here is another story where the name of the objects fools us. In Greece LOKUMI is not the most desired sweet, but in Turkey LOKUM is very important and widely consumed. So, I had the mission to run after the truth if they are the same. One of my Greek colleagues in the office brought […]
