Kumru 03.jpg

Kumru is a Turkish sandwich on a bun, typically with cheese, tomato, and sausage. The name of this street food is translated as 'turtledove', and derives from the shape of the sandwich. Original Kumru had ring-shape and was covered with sesame seeds. The present one appeared mid 20th century, and soon became very popular. The secret of its popularity is in its tasty and soft bread, specially produced by some local bakeries and restaurants with added chickpea sourdough. Some Kumru vendors also serve it with pickled cucumbers, hot pepper, mayonnaise and ketchup.
