Turkish Street Vendor

Turkish Street Vendors

While in Istanbul, I noticed there was an abundance of street vendors selling all kinds of different foods I’ve never seen on a food cart. I loved that you were able to get a variety of healthy alternatives on the go. There was freshly made candy, corn on the cob and  clams with a squeeze of lemon. I decided to make a meal out of it one day and just eat from street vendors. Here are some of my favorites:

Cig Koftecisi was by far my favorite. Reminiscent of kibbeh nayyeh. Really good....and spicy!
