What Is? Iskender

Iskender is a dish made from sliced döner meat, bread, tomato sauce, yogurt, and melted butter. 

Invented in Bursa, Turkey, the dish is actually trademarked by the Iskender family, who has the exclusive rights to sell the meal in Turkey. But, there more Iskender copies in Istanbul than fake Iphones, so finding an imitation is no problem. The succulent meat sits on the fresh bread, the thick yogurt is there to cool your mouth, and the entire thing is topped with melted butter. Comfort food times four.

In Sirkeci, try Iskender at Kasap Osman
