Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine in the Merchant City
Formerly a Glasgow institution serving up Scottish dishes, the City Merchant has transformed itself into City Merchant Turkiye. Turning its focus from Scotland to sunnier climes, it now specialises in offering the taste of Turkey and the Mediterranean to city centre diners.
Seafood, shish and sarma
At City Merchant Turkiye, you can enjoy Levantine favourites in a cosy and casual setting.
Starters include fried calamari rings in batter; chicken wings cooked on a charcoal grill, and pan-fried king prawns with halep sauce. Veggies can sample vine leaves stuffed with mixed rice and vegetables.
Main courses feature charcoal grilled salmon fillet; grilled lamb shish with fries, and vegetarian moussaka.
If you have room for dessert, then expect Turkish classics such as baklava and sultac rice pudding jostling for your attention alongside treats like chocolate fudge cake.
Merchant City attractions
