Newbie Here - Kusadasi

#1
Hi.
It's been 20 years since I last visited Kusadasi and I was wondering how much I should expect to pay for food and drink and the average price for a bottle of wine in the supermarket.
Thanks in advance.
Cora

It's Dikkman red or Kavak white for us 26tl a litre from Carrefour or Migros. It's anything from 30 upwards a bottle in restaurant- as always a mark up but with current rate of exchange it's cheaper than in Ireland.
Depending on where you eat and what you go for, you could have a two course meal for two with wine for 100-120 tl. You could also pay a lot more in the Marina or on Ladies Beach.
Fruit and veg is a fraction of the price in Ireland or the U.K. and are far superior in quality. Prices in Gurmar are more expensive than the market but of exceptional quality and I use both the market and Gurmar. Meat is on par cost wise with the uk and Ireland, with the fish at the fish market both cheaper and more varied than either.

Talking of shopping in Gumar here is something to note. When shopping in Gumar you will always see offers. If you are interested in anything on offer nearly always you have to spend a certain amount before the offer kicks in, otherwise you will be charged the original price. Always ask an assistant. It took me long enough to realise this ... doh!!

Not as bad as Migros though- where your moneykart that you frequently use and are given discounts on items where you're not totally in need of the product - but come a big ticket item you don't get the discount because your card is not " actif " ring this number!
