Here are some of the highlights, which I recommend you seeking out during a visit to “the city of the world’s desire.”
1) Wet Burger. OMG. Definitely my favorite street food in Istanbul. A strong contender for my favorite street food ever. I may have had three of them in one night. The most famous wet burger is from the Kizilkayalar stand in Taksim Square. It’s like a cheeseburger (but with a patty that tastes more like sausage) that has been dipped into a tomato broth. Imagine the texture of a French dip sandwich, but with a flavor combo you’ve never tried.
