We spend an hour at the little village Narlıkuyu, built around a placid cove lined with seafood restaurants. A Roman benefactor, Poimenios, built a bathhouse here in the 300s AD. A small museum on the village square houses its mosaics of the Three Graces Aglaia, Thalia, and Euphrosine, the daughters of Zeus and Eurynome. Our idea was to take a seafood lunch in the recommended restaurant, but to our surprise, it was packed. We could not get a table, so we ended up tasting the famous Lokma –  pastries made of leavened and deep-fried dough balls soaked in syrup (16 pcs and 3 bottles of water = 50 TRY).
