Turks have an ambiguous attitude towards this Turkish fast food, some like it, some hate it. Islak Hamburger is literally translated as "Wet Hamburger" from Turkish, and is a hamburger put in a fresh soft bun and soaked with oily tomato sauce, mainly sold by street vendors. Then wet hamburgers are put into a steam box under a moist heat lamp to become even wetter. Islak Hamburger was invented in Istanbul, and the most delicious Islak Hamburgers are sold at Taksim Square. It is usually served in a wrapper, so that customers couldn't get messy. Turkish wet hamburger goes well with ayran.
