Ignore the opening and closing times on the door because he seems to. Very annoying at times.

He was having treatment which meant the shop had to close now and then. It depended on his appointments.

You can phone the owner, Hamzel 0533 8416788 to check opening times. He has been very ill but seems to be now on the mend.

Also, 3 bears in Alsancak have a nice range of smoked pork products and I'm told they now have their own Pigs

It's BestMar. There is another food market further down the road called Besmar which is not related to the first. However Cemal is taking over another supermarket opposite Lemar near the Golden Lady, which will also be called BestMar. Confusing innit?

They are taking over the shop at the corner of the entrance road to the Merit hotels.

Bestmar near Flippers have some generous sized pork chops, shoulder and leg, but I don't think they have any pork pies.
Does the Alsancak butcher make them?

Don't think so, but they may make them Xmas time when they make chipolatas. Their bacon (at least he calls it bacon) is ok as well, better than the stuff you buy from supermarkets that ooze half a pint of water when cooked.

I'm on the second cure stage of making pancetta which will be ready end of July at the earliest. Too much for one person so how much do I charge for 100g? No profit for me, just an exercise to while away the time during 'lock-down'! Saltpetre and mace used in the cure.

I’d second that. Good smoked salmon in there too. You have to pin bone and slice it yourself but very good quality and a reasonable price

If you don’t mind travelling and people do travel miles to buy quality , Yusuf, our best butcher in Ozankoy has all types of cuts of pork. I make pork pies using four different cuts of pork and he prepares it exactly right to my requirements. All of his meats are amazing. Never buy my meat from anywhere else, and judging from the queue outside the shop the day before xmas eve, there are a lot of people who think the same. There must have been at least 50 no doubt collecting their xmas orders of turkey and pigs in blankets.
