Turkish food


Dürüm is a popular street food in Turkey as well as Europe, widely available in kebab shops and pizzerias. It’s a wrap made from lavash or yufka flatbread, which is then filled with small pieces or slices of kebab and vegetables.

Hot sauce and some kind of yogurt sauce is typically added as well. It’s an inexpensive Turkish food that is great if you want a quick bite or something on the go. 

Dürüm is one of the most common food groups in Istanbul culture, and there are as many kinds of dürüm as there are dürümcu, Turkish for the wrap making profession. Chicken or beef döner are common sights, as well as kebaps  or shish (skewered meat pieces).  Other fillings may include vegetables or cheese.

The most important component which can progress the standard everyday dürüm into something special is the flat bread. It should be thick enough to contain the juices of the meat, but thin enough to be light and chewy.
