Apart from çips (chips), two of the most popular potato dishes are patates bastısı and patates ezmesi. The latter, which is served as a meze dish, consists of potatoes mashed with crushed garlic, chopped onions and parsley, hound with olive oil and lemon juice. This version of patates bastısı comes from Ayvalik, known for its olives and olive oil factories, on the Aegean coast.
