Culinary Travel: Street Food In Gaziantep, Turkey

Today we are in the food Mecca of GAZIANTEP, one of Turkey’s BEST food cities. We are exploring more Turkish street food of Gaziantep in this episode! We start our day eat Yuvalama (soup with yogurt broth, rice balls, chickpeas, lamb and mint oil) for breakfast on the street. We ventured into the old bazaars to see what the traditional vendors are selling. The Coppersmith Bazaar was super interesting and had a traditional feel. After breakfast, it was time to have Gaziantep’s best dessert: BAKLAVA!

Here in the bazaar you can order baklava of any size or kind, but in Gaziantep it is a MUST to eat pistachio baklava. Next we head to a local shop serving a Gaziantep specialty known as Dürüm Nohut (chickpea wrap). Here you can choose all of the fresh ingredients yourself. It is extremely filling, satisfying and healthy. It is also a great vegetarian street food option! Next, we visit the Zeugma Mosaic Museum, which is one of Gaziantep’s top attractions. Zeugma is the name of ancient Gaziantep and these mosaics were discovered all around Gaziantep. It is a great way to spend the afternoon and don’t forget to check out the Gypsy Girl piece!

After the museum, we walk 5 minutes up the street to try the delicious Küşleme (grilled lamb backbone)! This is a rare meat dish, as there isn’t much of this cut of meat on a lamb. It is tender and juicy. Cooked to perfection! It was served with a fresh salad and a few spicy Küşleme pieces. You can also get delicious baklava here as well.

Kanafeh is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert made with shredded filo pastry, or alternatively fine semolina dough, soaked in sweet, sugar-based syrup, and typically layered with cheese, or with other ingredients such as clotted cream or nuts, depending on the region.
