Ottoman Street Food in Bursa, Turkey! (BUTTER ALERT!!!)
Izmir Street Food :
Welcome to the SECOND episode of our TURKISH STREET FOOD series! This time we’re in BURSA – home of the Iskender Kebap, mountains and tons of delicious street food!
We are starting our food tour with a Turkish breakfast special – simit and tahini pide. Simit is a circular, dense bread covered in sesame seeds. Almost like a Turkish bagel. Tahini pide is a doughy pastry smothered in thick tahini sauce (made of sesame paste). We washed it down with çay (Turkish tea) and ate a cheesy pastry which was a free sample! (Simit: 1.50 TRY/0.17 USD) (Pide 3 TRY/ 0.51 USD)
Next, we wondered around the MASSIVE market area known as Balıkçılar Pazarı. This fish/fresh market has everything you could ever want! We sampled olives, honey mulberry, cherries and watched artichoke cutting!
Inside the Balıkçılar Pazarı, we visit a local shop serving up fresh cantik. It is made with beef, tomatoes, onions and baked similar to pide. We also tried the Turkish drink called Ayran, which is a salty yogurt. It is a drink you have to try in Turkey. (8 TRY/ 1.36 USD each)
Next stop: The ancient Koza Han, which is a historical silk market from 1491 that used to sell silkworm cocoons and textiles. Nearby is the Grand Mosque of Bursa. It boasts 20 domes and 2 minarets and is a beautiful sight in the centre of Bursa.
A visit to Bursa is not complete until you have tried ISKENDER KEBAP, which is Bursa’s claim to fame! We visit the restaurant where Iskender Kebab was BORN! Juicy, tender meat covered in sheep’s butter served with tomato and yogurt on top of flat bread. Every bite is HEAVEN!!! (39 TRY/6.64 USD for 1 portion)
We watched the gorgeous sunset at an iconic Bursa sight – Tophane Clock Tower, and finished our street food tour in the park for çay! We hope you enjoyed, thank you so much for watching! More videos from Turkey coming very soon. Next up – Istanbul, so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss the next street food tour!
