Istanbul?s Top 5 Street Foods: #2 ? Çitir Simit Bakery

from Istanbul Eats

Lord of the rings -- photo by Yigal Schleifer
Let?s hear it for the (deceptively simple) simit. With only a few ingredients to its name, this sesame-encrusted bread ring has gone on to become the most ubiquitous snack in Istanbul, the undisputed heavyweight champ of the city?s street food scene. In fact, in recent years, the plucky simit has gone to even greater heights: once only sold from carts and by itinerant vendors carrying wooden trays on their heads, the snack is now the headlining act at several new, nationwide fast-food chains with names such as Simit Sarayi (Simit Palace) and Simit Dunyasi (Simit World) (and has even made its way to New York).

Istanbul?s Top 5 Street Foods: #1 ? Sabirtasi?s Icli Kofte

from Istanbul Eats

Sabirtasi's icli kofte -- photo by Jonathan Lewis
(Editors?s Note: This is the final installment in our (highly subjective) look at Istanbul?s top 5 street foods.)

For years on Istiklal Caddesi, just beyond Galatasaray High School, in one calm spot stood the beatific Ali Bey, an angel in a white doctor?s coat offering salvation in the form of golden fried icli kofte.  Though he passed away recently, Ali Bey left his post and his streetside stand ? as much a part of the Istiklal streetscape as the red trolley cars that run up and down the boulevard and the belle époque apartment buildings that line it ? to his son, who fills it with the same panache, white jacket and all. And thanks to Ali bey?s wife, Fatma hanim, the icli kofte lives on.
