kabob perfection takes time
Turkish cuisine is known not only for introducing the world to shish kebab but for a variety of delicious grilled meats and kebabs.
Adana Kabob is the signature dish named after one of Turkey's most famous kebab cities, Adana. This dish is made with ground beef or lamb kneaded together with onion, garlic, and Turkish spices, then packed by hand around large, flat metal skewers.
Döner Kabob, is a popular Turkish street food. In Turkey, the meat is leaner and is served much browner and crisper. This kebab originated not in the deep southeast, but in Bursa, a city just south of Istanbul and the first capital of the Ottoman Empire. Kabob was hung horizontally and cooked over coals similar to the way it's done further East.
Iskender Kabob, another popular kebab dish from Bursa, is named after Iskender Efendi himself. Crispy shavings of döner are laid upon a loaf of tender, flat pide bread, similar to pita, that's been cut into small squares.
