What Is? Kestane

Kestane are roasted chestnuts, often sold on the street with portable roasting carts.

Chestnuts are a popular snack among the people wandering the streets of Istanbul, though I am not partial to them myself. You can be sure you find a kestane cart not far from wherever you are at any given moment, and if you can’t see it, follow your nose, they make a distinct smokey smell as the hulls of the chestnuts are burned away on the small propane stoves mounted in the carts.
