Islak Hamburger 03.jpg

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.
