What Is? Kumpir (baked potato)

kumpir (baked potato)
Kumpir are baked potatoes stuffed with a huge variety of salads, vegetables, and meat products.

Usually served as a take away food in a small plastic box with disposable utensils, these giant morsels are great for eating by the sea side or sitting on a park bench.  Average price for a kumpir is about 7tl. Available in Sirkeci along the tram line on Ankara Caddesi, though unfortunately my favorite kumpir place has closed and become NFS Burger Turk a blatant rip-off of Burger King which I have yet to work up the courage to try.
