Especially, after the population exchange in 1923 the people who arrived in Greece, upgraded the plain cuisine of the mainland Greece, adding to it a little bit of spice. The food that the refugees brought, mostly kept their original Turkish names. That’s why the Greeks still use the “politiki” cuisine term, meaning the cuisine of Istanbul.
