Simit – Istanbul

This timeless, this traditional flavor is so simple yet so hard to forget…

Crunchy, twisted – literally -, sesame covered, oven baked savory pastry is a street taste. Some of us like it plain, some with Turkish tea and cheese, some with ayran, some with marmalade. No matter what you decide to accompany it with, simit is always good. Simit is my excuse for a boat trip!

Needless to say more,  if you see a simit trolley or a guy carrying all of that brown rings on top of his head, stop him, have one or two. Bite it and hear that sound and your mouth fulls with joy, and sesames all over you 🙂
