Streetfood in Istanbul

Coming from Delhi – a city famed for its street-carts full of golgappas and papri chaats, roasted peanuts and kulfis I definitely  miss eating streetfood in the UAE. Here there are no carts laden with food jostling for your attention nor hungry foodies munching goodies on the streets. So, imagine my joy when we landed in historic Istanbul that boasts of a great street food culture. There were street buffets, donner kebabs, sticky candies and roasted chestnuts vying for our attention. Salivate with these pics 🙂
