Last year, there was no spring in Turkey. I got cranky when it was early June and I was still wearing a jacket! Then one day it went from freezing cold to blazing hot… at least we had a summer.
But this year we’ve had the gift of a proper spring….and it even came early! The weather has been sooooooooo nice since early April. The first day it warmed up, we decided to go out and enjoy it!
Then we sat at a sidewalk cafe that specializes in Iskender Kebap. They brought out our starters first.
Then it was time for Iskender Kebap. Iskender consists of flatbread topped with thinly-sliced roasted meat (usually beef), a simple tomato sauce, and a side of plain yogurt….if that isn’t enough, watch what the waiter pours on top of it all once he brings the plate to the table:
I know I said you couldn’t make it in the states…but I’m hoping to prove myself wrong this summer!
