Istanbul: The vote is in! Döner Kebap it is.

October 11, 2015

The vote is in! Döner Kebap it is.

It was close with Balik Ekmek (Fish Bread) at 42% and Döner Kebap at 58%.

The most famous Kebab in the world is the Döner kebab witch literally means “rotating Kebab” in Turkish. Before taking its modern form, the ancestor of the Döner was the “Çag Kebabi” and it’s mentioned in the Ottoman travel books of the 18th century. It was  an horizontal stack of meat from the eastern province of Erzurum.

Tomorrow Chef Tom gets to have a delicious Döner Kebap, but not just your run of the mill Döner, this one is special and rises above the very crowded marketplace filled with Döner chefs. These are layers of succulent lamb and beef laced with juicy green pepper and tomatoes.

I will let you know how it goes.  I may talk with my mouth full.
