Street Food at Home - Lebanese street food style kofta kebab recipe. Cook and eat #withme #streetfoodathome #Lebanon #LebaneseFood

Baalbek, Lebanon - Welcome to Baalbek, Lebanon, one of the world’s most ancient cities. I was excited to visit, and before we toured the ancient ruins of Baalbek, we went on a street food tour. The first place Kamel and Fadi took me was a small butcher shop that specialized in not only raw fresh meat, but kebabs and kofta kebabs, and preparing meat to go into a special pastry from Baalbek. After eating the amazing pastries - which unfortunately didn’t make today - we then had some of the best freshly grilled kofta kebabs I’ve ever had. And so in this video we’ll learn to make Lebanese street food kofta kebabs!

First let me mention to you this was my first time to ever make this kofta kebab recipe, and more importantly my first time to form kebabs on skewers. Let me tell you, they make it look much easier than it is. To form minced meat onto a metal sword like skewer can take a lifetime of practice and it’s challenging to get the perfect consistency, evenness, and form. But luckily it turned out pretty well.

Ok, here are all the ingredients you’ll need to make this Lebanese street food kofta recipe. And this list of ingredients is just a guide, not exact. You can increase or decrease depending on your taste and feel.

For the kofta kebabs:
1 White onion
100 g. Flat leaf parsley
1 kg. Ground lamb (or beef)
½ teaspoon Lebanese Seven Spice mixture
1 teaspoon Black pepper
Salt - to taste
Dry chili (I used cayenne) - to taste

For the parsley salad:
100 g. Flat leaf parsley
1 White onion
2 Tomatoes
1 teaspoon Sumac
½ Lemon juice
Salt - to taste

Extras:
Tomatoes and onions to roast, pita bread to eat with entire meal

Make sure you watch the video for complete direction, steps, and method on how to make this recipe. Hope you enjoy it, and let me know how your kofta kebabs come out!

Here are the restaurants and stalls we ate at during this Lebanese street food tour:

Hajj Nasr Sandwich Shop - By 6 am, when Beirut is about to wake up, Hajj Nasr is getting ready to close. We arrived at 5 am to make sure he still had food.

Al Soussi Restaurant ( - This is one of the most famous restaurants in Beirut, especially for breakfast. Their fattey and hummus is good, but nothing compares to their awarma and eggs.

L'abeille D'or ( - Finally, we ended this ultimate 14 hour street food tour in Beirut, Lebanon at a very non street food, gourmet Lebanese sweets shop to eat Kanafeh. But the Lebanese way, in a bun.

Eating The BEST FOOD in Lebanon - Massive Family Lunch!

????Ultimate Street Food Tour in Beirut:
????T-shirts and caps:

Huge thank you to Kamel and the entire Taha family. When you’re in Beirut, go check out their amazing boutique grocery store called Feryal Mouneh Boutique ( And follow Kamel here: Of all the food I ate in Lebanon, for me the best Lebanese food is home-cooked, often on Sunday.

Sunday Family Lunch in Lebanon - There’s a lot of amazing food you can eat in Lebanon, but nothing quite compares to a Sunday family lunch. Having a chance to eat lunch on Sunday with a family is the greatest display of Lebanese food, culture, and hospitality, all wrapped into a single celebration of Lebanese food. It was an honor to have a chance to hang out with the Taha family and celebrate Sunday lunch with them. #Lebanon #LebaneseFood #food

Fifi (Kamel’s Mom) made an impressive spread of home-cooked Lebanese food - including a mix of dishes, the highlights being stuffed cabbage rolls, and stuffed intestines and grape leaves. When I asked Kamel what dishes he missed the most from Lebanon when he goes traveling, or when he lived abroad, and he said, him and his brothers always come home and ask Mom for stuffed intestines.

It was nothing short of an epic home-cooked meal, one of the most memorable of my life, and to be surrounded by such an incredible family was a privilege.

Thank you again to Kamel and the Taha’s (

TRIPOLI, LEBANON - Tripoli is an ancient city in the North of Lebanon, and a food paradise. In this video we went on an ultimate street food tour of Tripoli, discovered some of the unique local foods, including the most amazing stretchy CHEESE WATERFALL dessert I’ve ever seen - it was an amazing day in Lebanon. #Lebanon #Tripoli #LebaneseFood #streetfood

Here’s everything we did on this Lebanese street food tour in Tripoli:

Kaake Traboulsi - The breakfast staple in Tripoli is a type of bread called kaake traboulsi, filled with cheese and sumac and grilled. 1,000 LBP ($0.66) - Price for 1

Restaurant of Happiness - Really that’s the name! - This bakery was incredible, so much action and energy, and the baked goods were delicious. 21,000 LBP ($13.93) - Price for everything

The Great Mosque of Tripoli - Mamluk Mosque completed in 1314 - We then did some sightseeing in the ancient city of Tripoli, the Great Mosque and to the Citadel of Raymond de Saint-Gilles which was built during the Crusades. The views of the city were fantastic and gave a nice perspective of the city.

Moghrabieh - Couscous from Morocco - This is a very interesting food in Tripoli, with influence of Morocco, but big balls of couscous wrapped in a sandwich. But the best thing about this place was the amazing stretchy cheese dessert. 1,500 LBP ($1.00) - Price per sandwich

Al-Abd Hammam - One of the highlights of the day was visiting the old Hamam, a Turkish bath built in the 17th Century during the Ottoman period. It was great to take a rest and drink a coffee in the hammam.

Bayt El Falafel - Falafel Restaurant - 1,500 LBP ($1.00) - Price per sandwich

Kalasina Chicken ( - Grilled and rotisserie chicken, which is a popular food in Tripoli, and this place was delicious. Their garlic was amazing. 20,000 LBP ($13.27) - Price for everything

GIANT MEAT BALLS in Lebanon - Special KIBBEH Lebanese Food!

Go to to get 75% off a 3-year plan and use code MARKWIENS for an extra month for free!

????Ultimate Street Food Tour in Beirut:
????Thanks to Almerdeshiyeh Soutou Restaurant:

ZGHARTA, LEBANON - When it comes to kibbeh in Lebanon, this is the village that’s made a name for itself throughout Lebanon. And before today, the only kibbeh I was really familiar with was the oval shaped little deep fried ones. It was learning experience, and I now realize why kibbeh and all its various shapes and sizes is truly one of the most special dishes of Lebanese cuisine. #Lebanon #LebaneseFood #food

Almerdeshiyeh Soutou Restaurant ( - We arrived to the restaurant and had some breakfast next to the river before proceeding with the cooking for the day. Then we got started making a few variations of kibbeh.

What is Kibbeh? - Combination of bulgur, minced meat, spices, and can be made into many formations.

We had kibbeh nayyeh - the raw meat version, kibbeh in a big flat circular pan (cooked in the fire oven), fried kibbeh, and finally the king of all kibbeh - giant meat balls filled with lamb fat and grilled.

It was an amazing meal, with similar ingredients making up each type of kibbeh but with endless shapes and sizes. Another incredible Lebanese food meal in Lebanon!

SAIDA / SIDON, LEBANON - This was one of the best days and Lebanese food tours of my trip to Lebanon.

Here are the street food and places we visited in this video:

Abou Al Abed Cafe - Seafood Restaurant - They are very cool, and you choose the seafood you want, and they will deep fry it all, and serve it with different sauces and dips. We ate seafood for breakfast, and it was perfect.

Foul Abou El-Ezz - Kamel and Ramil both said this is the best ful in Lebanon, and it was no doubt the best ful I’ve ever had in my life. The amount of spices and additions, as well as the bitter orange, made it superd. Additionally, his fatteh and hummus were insane.

Kahwet el Qzez - Old coffee shop - Probably the coolest old coffee shop in Lebanon, it’s a community social atmosphere, where people hang out, gather, talk, drink coffee, and play cards.

Rahat el Halkoun - Turkish Delight - We stopped for a quick taste of Turkish delight in Lebanon.

Dabane Palace Museum - Along with street food, we also enjoyed walking around the ancient souk market areas of Saida / Sidon. The Dabane Palace was impressive. Price - 5,000 LBP ($3.31)

Falafel Abou Rami - Finally to end this street food tour, we ate at this legendary falafel spot, the king of falafel. One of the best falafel sandwiches I’ve ever had. Total price - 16,000 LBP ($10.61)

It was another fantastic day in Lebanon, experiencing some of the best Arabian Lebanese food I’ve had.

BAALBEK, LEBANON - Baalbek is an ancient city in central Lebanon, founded as a Phoenician city, but with immense history and civilizations, and impressive Roman ruins. But along with the ruins, Baalbek is known for its unique bakery foods and lots of grilled meat. This turned out to be one of my favorite dates in Lebanon for the mix of food, culture, and history. #Baalbek #Lebanon #LebaneseFood

Laiterie Massabki - On the drive from Beirut to Baalbek, we took the highway that goes from Beirut to Damascus, Syria, and Kamel mentioned that almost everyone who makes the drive stops for some cheese sandwiches a long the way, so we had to stop. They turned out to be incredibly delicious, well worth a stop. Total price - 26,000 LBP ($17.25)

Sfiha Baalbakiyye - One of the highlights of the day and of my trip to Lebanon was going to the butchery to order fresh kebabs. At the butchery they also ground fresh meat, mixed it with herbs and spices, and then we took it to the bakery across the street to make Sfiha Baalbakiyye. The bakery skills they had were super human! The kebabs and kofta were stunning as well. 65,000 LBP ($43.12) - Price for all meat and pastries

Palmyra Hotel - Kamel knows the manager of the classic Palmyra Hotel, which has been in continual operation for the last 140 years. After walking around the hotel for a bit, we had a Baalbek style food lunch in their courtyard. Food was delicious, fresh, and different tasting from a lot of the Lebanese food I had tried so far. After lunch we went to a very kind womans home to see the local Baalbek cheese and have a coffee as well.

Baalbek Ruins - And to finish off this food and attractions tour of Baalbek, we visited the famous ruins. I was blown away by the preservation and magnitude of the ruins - they are truly spectacular. 15,000 LBP ($9.95) - Entrance per person

It was an amazing day in Baalbek, Lebanon, and the highlight for me was the bakery skills and the kofta.

ISTANBUL STREET FOOD will BLOW YOU AWAY!! Turkish Street Food HEAVEN - Adana Kebab + Pickle Juice!

Kemeraltı Bazaar in Izmir:

Iskender Kebab in Bursa :

Amazing street food can be found all around Istanbul! Join us as we continue our Street Food in Turkey tour! Today we are going to be trying some unique foods you’ve never heard of!

For breakfast, we are having a RARE type of turşu suyu, which is pickle juice. We ordered the “mixed” version - with cabbage, carrots, cucumbers and beets. And of course, the pickle juice is SPICY! (5 TRY / 0.86 USD)

Next, we’re visiting a weekly fresh market called Tarlabaşi Pazari which is only open on Sundays. In the summer, apricots are in season, and they are worth trying fresh at this traditional market!

In Istanbul, you can sample delicious cuisine that comes from all over Turkey. This time, we decided on Adana cuisine. Adana kebab is made from hand-minced lamb meat cooked over charcoal. That smokey flavour and juicy lamb is HEAVEN! (35 TRY / 6.02 USD)

If you’ve never tried traditional Turkish ice cream, you are missing out! We head to an old-school shop serving up a chewy textured (made from mastic) ice cream cone. So incredible on a hot Turkish summer day! (4.5 TRY / 0.77 USD)

Next up is a cruise on the iconic Bosphorus, because a trip to Istanbul is not complete without one. We opted for the economic TurYol cruise, a 90-minute tour north that passes palaces, mansions, bridges and plenty of gorgeous sights. For 20 TRY / 3.44 USD, that is totally worth it!!!

Since we were near the Bosphorus, we thought we would try the very FAMOUS Balik Ekmek, or grilled fish sandwich. In a tourist hot-spot, served from a real boat, the sights surrounding the restaurant are why it is so popular. The food however, was not that tasty and isn’t considered a good choice among the locals. We wanted to see what the hype was about. Oh well! (15 TRY / 2.58 USD)

Village Food in Lebanon - BIG POT MOUNTAIN COOKING in Shouf | Middle Eastern Food!

????Ultimate Street Food Tour in Beirut:
????T-shirts and caps:
????Mark Wiens Banana Chips - Worldwide Shipping Available Now:

SHOUF (or CHOUF), LEBANON - Shouf is a region of Lebanon, home to an amazing biosphere reserve, and delicious mountain Lebanese food. In this video, we hung out with Cezar ( checked out some of the amazing sights, and ate some delicious local food. #Lebanon #LebaneseFood #Shouf

Cezar’s Guest House - Shouf, Lebanon - Thanks again to Cezar ( for hosting us. We started off the day with breakfast at the guest house farmstay, gathering our own eggs and vegetables. Breakfast was simple, but delicious.

Shouf Biosphere Reserve Barouk Cedar Forest - Thought it was a short hike, it was fantastic to see the cedars of Lebanon, but quite different from the other Cedars of God ( I had already seen. One of the highlights was hugging The Old Lady - People say, this is the cedar tree depicted on the flag of Lebanon.

Atelier Assaf - Art, sculpture, eco-park - Very unique place, and the brothers are extremely skilled stonemasons and craftsmen.

For lunch we returned to the guest house to eat home cooked food. Some of the talented women from the community came to the house to cook their specialities. It was an incredibly delicious home-cooked meal.

Yerba mate - I had no idea that a yerba mate culture existed in Lebanon. But due to the big population of Lebanese in Brazil and Argentina, then returning to Lebanon, they brought with them yerba mate. I spent a few months in Argentina in 2008, and learned to love it.

Dinner - Harees - Finally for dinner, we made a huge pot of harees, also known by many similar names throughout the Middle East. But it’s a wheat and meat stew, boiled for so long that it all blends together. It was very interesting to me because many of the spices were spices I typically associate with sweetness, but this was a savory dish. Very warming and a very mountain style dish.

Pakistani Street Food ???????? Chicken Karahi Recipe!! | Street Food At Home Ep. 1

????Pakistani Street Food Tour:
????100% Real Durian Chips - Order Here:

Street Food at Home - Pakistani street food style chicken karahi recipe. Cook and eat #withme #streetfoodathome #Pakistan #PakistaniFood #recipes

Traveling through Pakistan for the amazing food with my friend Ali Hamdani ( was one of the most memorable trips I’ve taken. If there’s one single dish that represents the incredible food, culture, and community of Pakistan, it has to be a karahi.

In this video, we’re heading to the street food cart at home, and we’re going to cook an authentic Pakistani street food chicken karahi recipe. Let’s get started!

Ingredients (and please note, these are estimates, I’m a firm believer in taste testing, so feel free to add more or less according to your taste):

1 chicken - about 1 kg, could be more
¼ cup oil - vegetable oil with high smoke point

8 cloves of garlic
50 grams ginger
Salt to taste
5 tomatoes - up to you depending on how tomatoey you want it

1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp garam masala
½ tbsp black pepper
½ tsp turmeric powder

10 - 15 green chilies
1 - 2 tbsp dry fenugreek leaves

Slice of butter - at some places they use an entire block of butter per karahi - but at home I used a slice, about 20 grams.

30 grams ginger - julienne slices for garnish
Fresh coriander - handful chopped
More green chilies to garnish on top

Method:

First heat the oil, and fry the chicken until golden on edges.
Peel and pound ginger and garlic, and add to chicken.
Add in salt to taste - ½ tsp first
Toss in the tomatoes, and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. You can add water if it get dry.
When the tomatoes are soft, remove the skin, and mash tomatoes into a sauce. Cook until tomatoes are fully dissolved and chicken is tender.
Add in all the dry spices - cumin powder, coriander powder, chili powder, garam masala, black pepper, and turmeric powder. Continuously stir, and add water if it gets too dry.
Add sliced green chilies, and fenugreek leaves. Continue to simmer.
Add butter. Continue to simmer, but at this time you want much of the liquid to boil out so you’re left with a thick spice rich sauce.
Julienne the ginger, coarsely chop the coriander leaves, and cut in half some more green chilies. At the end, toss them all in, fold into the chicken, and turn off the heat.
Ready to serve.
Best eaten with any time of flatbread.

Simple roti
250 grams Atta flour
200 ml water - You may need to adjust

SUNNING HILL, JAMAICA - It was truly an honor to have a chance to hang out at Ras Kitchen in Sunning Hill, Jamaica, with the legendary Rasta Mokko and Matt. We had an amazing time hanging out, learning from Ras Mokko’s knowledge of ingredients, cooking, and life, and eating delicious Jamaican Rasta food. #Rasta #Jamaica #JamaicanFood

We arrived to Sunning Hill, found Matt ( who films and operates Ras Kitchen, and then we headed down to the yard to meet Ras Mokko.

Ras Mokko got started cooking a few of his signature Rasta Jamaican foods - today on the menu was red herring and ackee rundown with fresh coconut milk. This was just our first course, which Ras Mokko served along with fresh roasted breadfruit. The combination of ingredients and the creaminess of the ackee was spectacular.

After lunch we had one of the most unique beverages I’ve had - hand squeezed soursop, with condensed milk, and Guiness. It was unique and somehow worked perfectly. It was deliciously sweet, fruity, and foamy.

In the afternoon, we took a swim in the river, and one of the highlights was Ras Mokko taking us on a tour of the garden and herb farm where he grows many of his own ingredients that he cooks.

Finally, to wash it all down, Ras Mokko made a Rasta herbal tea, including a mix of medicinal herbs.

An incredible day in Sunning Hill, Jamaican, and a Jamaican Rasta food experience with the legendary Ras Mokko and Matt of Ras Kitchen!

Meet the KEBAB KINGS of IRAN!! ????????SWORD CHOPPED Meat-Madness in Bonab! ????

????Follow Mr. Taster:
????Street Food in Tabriz, Iran:
????T-shirts and caps:

BONAB, IRAN - Ask around in Iran where the best kebabs are, and a likely response you’ll get quite quickly is Bonab. Bonab is a city known throughout Iran for their kebabs. Located in Northern Iran, there was no way we were going to miss an opportunity of a lifetime to eat Bonab kebabs from their source. #Iran #IranianFood #kebabs #streetfood

It was about a 2 hour drive from Tabriz, but it was well worth it. We jumped out of the van, and entered the Bonab market. Eventually we came to the meat section of the market. What’s unique about the Bonad meat market is that you can buy fresh meat, and then bring it to one of the kebab restaurants within the market, and they will immediately on spot make for you fresh kebabs. And in a country that lives of kebabs, Bonab kebabs are special. It’s one of the only places in Iran, where they hand chop your meat using swords, mix it with onions and seasonings, form the kebabs, and grill them, all in one little closet sized Iranian street food restaurant. What truly makes a difference is the hand sword chopped mince of the meat so its not too fine, but remains steaky.

The kebabs were grilled fresh and hot and served dripping in their own fatty juices, and served with roasted tomatoes and chilies. The combination was heavenly, some of the best and most pure kebabs I’ve tasted anywhere in the world. The freshness speaks for itself, and again, the hand ground chopped texture makes all the difference.

Bonab, Iran, truly is the King of kebabs in Iran!

Thank you to Ghasr Setareh ( for arranging our trip to Iran.

Greek Food - STREET FOOD TOUR and Amazing Souvlaki in Athens, Greece!

Thank you to Tassos for taking me on this incredible Greek food tour of Athens!
►Subscribe -
►T-shirts -

Athens is a city that I’ve wanted to visit ever since learning so much about it during one of my Western Civilizations classes in High School. Finally, I had a chance to visit, not only for the amazing history, but mainly for the amazing Greek food!

In this video, I’m taking you on a one day, all out Greek food tour of Athens along with Tassos. We ate a combination of classic Greek street food snacks, and a few restaurants, including for dinner some of the best lamb chops I’ve ever had.

Here are all the restaurants and places included in this Greek food tour of Athens:

Dexameni Cafe - Our first stop was to drink Greek coffee in this small public square. A great environment, and the coffee was excellent.
Price - 1.80 EUR per cup

Kostarelos Deli - Tassos knows his Greek cheese and he says Kostarelos Deli has some of the best cheese in Athens.
Total price - 14.60 EUR

Mam - Mam is often considered the best Greek cheese pie in Athens, and it’s a perfect street food kind of place. Most people take-away, but they have a standing table as well. The classic Greek cheese pie was my favorite.
Total price - 4.80 EUR

Varvakios Market - This is the Athens central market for meat and seafood. It’s a beautiful market and any lover would enjoy walking around this amazing market.

Miran - Pastourma and Soutzouki - This is a really cool little deli in Athens where you can buy for takeaway or order whatever you see and sit at one of the tables to snack. They are known for their camel pastirma, and it was the best thing we tried - absolutely excellent.
Total price - 4.62 EUR

Bougatsopoleio Thessaloniki - Bougatsa is a famous Greek food pastry. We tried a couple versions, but the best for me was the minced meat filled bougatsa.
Total price - 15.50 EUR

Kostas Soulvaki - Souvlaki, also known as kalamaki is perhaps the best known of all Greek street food or Greek fast food, and Kostas is considered to be one of the best places to eat it in Athens. They grill pork, stuff it into Greek pita, top it with tomatoes, onions, and tomato sauce, and wrap it into a handheld treat. Amazing.
Price - 2.20 EUR per piece

Taverna To Trigono - For dinner, Tassos wanted to take us to one of his favorite restaurants in Athens, a little outside of the city in a place called Kalyvia Thorikou. This is a countryside meat paradise, and they served us some of the best lamb chops I’ve ever had in my life. An amazing meal to end an incredible day of Greek food in Athens.
Lamb chops
Total price for everything - 99 EUR

Thank you for watching this Greek food tour of Athens!

KING of İSKENDER KEBAB - 150 Year Old TURKISH Street Food in Bursa!! BEST Street Food in Turkey 2019

Ottoman Street Food in Bursa, Turkey! (BUTTER ALERT!!!)

Izmir Street Food :

Welcome to the SECOND episode of our TURKISH STREET FOOD series! This time we’re in BURSA - home of the Iskender Kebap, mountains and tons of delicious street food!

We are starting our food tour with a Turkish breakfast special - simit and tahini pide. Simit is a circular, dense bread covered in sesame seeds. Almost like a Turkish bagel. Tahini pide is a doughy pastry smothered in thick tahini sauce (made of sesame paste). We washed it down with çay (Turkish tea) and ate a cheesy pastry which was a free sample! (Simit: 1.50 TRY/0.17 USD) (Pide 3 TRY/ 0.51 USD)

Next, we wondered around the MASSIVE market area known as Balıkçılar Pazarı. This fish/fresh market has everything you could ever want! We sampled olives, honey mulberry, cherries and watched artichoke cutting!

Inside the Balıkçılar Pazarı, we visit a local shop serving up fresh cantik. It is made with beef, tomatoes, onions and baked similar to pide. We also tried the Turkish drink called Ayran, which is a salty yogurt. It is a drink you have to try in Turkey. (8 TRY/ 1.36 USD each)

Next stop: The ancient Koza Han, which is a historical silk market from 1491 that used to sell silkworm cocoons and textiles. Nearby is the Grand Mosque of Bursa. It boasts 20 domes and 2 minarets and is a beautiful sight in the centre of Bursa.

A visit to Bursa is not complete until you have tried ISKENDER KEBAP, which is Bursa’s claim to fame! We visit the restaurant where Iskender Kebab was BORN! Juicy, tender meat covered in sheep’s butter served with tomato and yogurt on top of flat bread. Every bite is HEAVEN!!! (39 TRY/6.64 USD for 1 portion)

We watched the gorgeous sunset at an iconic Bursa sight - Tophane Clock Tower, and finished our street food tour in the park for çay! We hope you enjoyed, thank you so much for watching! More videos from Turkey coming very soon. Next up - Istanbul, so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss the next street food tour!

Street Food in Turkey 2019

Istanbul Street Food - DELICIOUS Turkish Kofte and Breakfast on Turkish Airlines!

►Check out my Istanbul travel food guide:
►Subscribe to my videos:
►Camera I use: (affiliate link)

Day 8: Istanbul, Turkey - On Day 8, we flew on Turkish Airlines and from Muscat to Istanbul. The flight on Turkish Airlines was fantastic, and I had my first ever Turkish breakfast while in the sky. We then checked into The Ritz-Carlton hotel, and had some amazing Istanbul street food kofte for lunch. Istanbul is a city that I’ve always wanted to visit, and I can’t wait to explore and eat more Turkish food!

0:15 Turkish Breakfast on Turkish Airlines - To begin this day and video my wife and I were on a flight with Turkish Airlines (member of Star Alliance) from Muscat, Oman to Istanbul, Turkey. Turkish Airlines is an amazing airlines, and on business class they served us Turkish breakfast since we happen to fly into Istanbul early in the morning. Bread, olives, cheese, honey, and then the main dish included eggs and vegetables. Great flight with Turkish Airlines!

2:42 Istanbul Atatürk Airport - We arrived to Istanbul very early in the morning and after grabbing our bag, we found the bus outside the terminal to go to Taksim Square. The bus cost 11 TL ($3.73) per person.

4:57 The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul - Marriott Hotels sponsored my stay in Istanbul, and it was an honor to have the opportunity to stay at the The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul, which is located just a 5 minute walk from Taksim Square, with a fantastic view of the Bosphorus. We got all checked in, and the room was fantastic.

7:44 Istanbul Street Food - Kofte Sandwich Stall - After taking a little rest in the hotel and drinking some coffee, Ying and I were both pretty hungry. There’s a small Istanbul street food stall that serves amazing grilled kofte, just down the street from The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul, and that’s exactly where we headed, right at lunch time. Before ever arriving I could smell the aroma of the meat on the grill and then I could see the colorful display of peppers and parsley surrounding the grill as well. I ordered a kofte sandwich, and after toasting the bread, he added in a bunch of little meat kofte patties, some tomatoes and onions and peppers, seasoned with some spices and chili powder and handed it to me. For 10 TL ($3.40) for sandwich and drink, this was about as good as it could possibly get for Istanbul street food! Wow it was so good.

12:17 Taksim Square and Turkish Coffee at Mandabatmaz (Istiklal Street) - After that amazing kofte sandwich, we continued walking through Taksim Square, one of the most famous landmarks of Istanbul and then on to the walking Istiklal street. The highlight for me was stopping at Mandabatmaz for a cup of the most amazing Turkish coffee I’ve ever had. Turkish coffee - 5 TL ($1.70).

17:04 Fish and Meat House - At this point Ying and I were starting to get really sleepy - we hadn’t really slept the night before. So we stopped for an early dinner at Fish and Meat House to have some grilled fish. I had the grilled sea bream, which was simple and plain but excellently fresh and cooked perfectly. The salad was also delicious. Total price for everything - 74 TL ($25.12).

The Ultimate DUBAI FOOD TOUR - Street Food and Emirati Cuisine in Dubai, UAE!

Check out this amazing food in Dubai, UAE!
Peyman’s Channel►
Subscribe for 2 new videos per week►

When I was in Dubai, I had the privilege of hanging out and eating with my friend Peyman ( He’s from Dubai, he loves to eat, and he knows some of the best food spots in Dubai. So in this Dubai food tour, we went around and ate Emirati food, rice and lamb, street food, karak tea, and finally ended with home cooked Emirati food at Peyman’s home.

One thing I want to quickly mention, and Peyman and I discussed this in the video as well, is that Emirati food at restaurants is still not very common in Dubai. This is because there are so many international restaurants in Dubai, and local Emiratis typically just eat their food at home. But things are changing and there is starting to be a higher demand for Emirati food in Dubai.

Al Fanar Restaurant - One of the only full Emirati food restaurants in Dubai. We ordered Luqaimat, Tharid, Madrooba, Balaleet. All the food was fantastic, and it’s a nice environment.
Total price - 280 AED ($76.21)

Karak - 0.50 AED ($0.14) per cup - This is originally adapted from India, but it’s a full part of the culture in UAE, and you can get cups of karak tea right to your car.

Al Marhabani Restaurant - Mandi is one of the greatest Arabian food dishes, originally from Yemen. It includes rice and meat that’s traditionally cooked in an underground oven. The lamb here was outstanding.
Total price - 200 AED ($54.44)

Al Labeeb Grocery - Regag bread - This is a little gem of a shop that Peyman took me to. They make some Dubai street food style crepes with cheese and fish sauce, and it’s awesome.
Price - 6 AED ($1.63) each

Machboos - Finally at Peyman’s house for dinner, he cooked machboos, one of the national dishes of UAE. It was a great way to end this Dubai food tour!

Thank you for watching this Dubai food tour!

istanbul street food | turkish bacon - sujuk and kofta with bread | turkey street food

Sujuk (Turkish: sucuk) is a dry, spicy sausage of Turkic origin which is eaten from the Balkans to the Middle East and Central Asia.
Abone Olun ►goo.gl/xDyp3Y Subscribe ►goo.gl/xDyp3Y
Sujuk consists of ground meat (usually beef, but pork or lamb are used in some recipes and horse meat in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan[1]), with various spices including fenugreek, cumin, sumac, garlic, salt, and red pepper, fed into a sausage casing and allowed to dry for several weeks. It can be more or less spicy; it is fairly salty and has a high fat content.
The Turkish name sucuk has been adopted unmodified in the languages of the region including Bulgarian: суджук, sudzhuk; Russian: суджук, sudzhuk; German: sudschuk; Albanian: suxhuk; Romanian: sugiuc; Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian sudžuk /cyџyk; Macedonian: суџук, sudžuk; Armenian: սուջուխ, suǰux; Arabic: سجق, sujuq‎; Greek: σουτζούκι, soutzouki. Cognate names are present in many Turkic languages: Kyrgyz: чучук, chuchuk; Kazakh: шұжық, shujyq

KOFTA

Kofta (see § Naming for other terms) is a family of meatball or meatloaf dishes found in South Asian, Middle Eastern, Balkan, and Central Asian cuisine. In the simplest form, koftas consist of balls of minced or ground meat—usually beef, chicken, lamb, or pork—mixed with spices and/or onions. In South Asia and the Middle East, koftas are usually made from lamb, beef, mutton or chicken, whereas Greek, Cypriot, and Balkan versions may use pork, beef or mixture of the three. In India, vegetarian varieties include koftas made from potato, calabash, paneer, or banana. In Europe, kofta is served as fast food as a type of kebab.

Koftas in India are usually served cooked in a spicy curry/gravy and are eaten with boiled rice or a variety of Indian breads. In Iran, Iraq and Azerbaijan, koftas are served with a spiced gravy, as dry variations are considered to be kebabs. Shrimp and fish koftas are found in South India, West Bengal, some parts of the Persian Gulf, and parts of Egypt.

The meat is often mixed with other ingredients, such as rice, bulgur, vegetables, or eggs to form a smooth paste. They can be grilled, fried, steamed, poached, baked or marinated, and may be served with a rich spicy sauce. Koftas are sometimes made from fish or vegetables rather than red meat, especially in India; deep-fried kofta made from shrimp is known in Egypt.[1] Variations occur in North Africa, the Mediterranean, the Balkans, and India. According to a 2005 study done by a private food company, there were 291 different kinds of kofta in Turkey. [2] In the Arab world, kufta is usually shaped into cigar-shaped cylinders.

Early recipes (included in some of the earliest known Arabic cookbooks) generally concern seasoned lamb rolled into orange-sized balls, and glazed with egg yolk and sometimes saffron. This method was taken to the West and is referred to as gilding or endoring. Many regional variations exist, notable among them include the unusually large Azerbaijani (Iranian) Tabriz kuftesi, having an average diameter of 20 cm, (8 in).[3] and despite its association with Iran.

Koftas were introduced in South Asia following the Turkic conquests in the region, particularly by the Mughals. Koftas in South Asian cuisine are normally cooked in a spiced gravy, or curry, and sometimes simmered with hard-boiled eggs. Kofta dishes are very popular with immigrants from South Asia to the United Kingdom, and are widely available from many South Asian restaurants. Vegetarian koftas are eaten by a large population in India. The British dish Scotch egg may have been inspired by the Mughlai dish Nargisi kofta (Narcissus kofta[5]), where hard-boiled eggs are encased in a layer of spicy kofta meat.[6] In Bengal, a region of eastern India, koftas are made from prawns, fish, green bananas, cabbage or meat, such as minced goat meat. In Kashmir, mutton is often used in the preparation of koftas, as opposed to beef or lamb.

In Lebanon, kafta is usually prepared by mixing the ground beef with onion, parsley, allspice, black pepper and salt.[7]

In Morocco, kufta may be prepared in a tagine.

In Israel, they are usually made of beef, chicken, lamb or a mixture of chicken and beef with allspice, parsley, mint, onion, black pepper and salt and are fried in olive oil or cooked in tomato or pomegranate stews. Israeli fish kufta is made of minced fish, coriander, dried peppers (bell peppers and chili peppers), onion, black pepper and salt and is usually cooked in a tomato stew with chickpeas or white beans.

In Pakistan, kofta is made from ground beef with onion, spices and salt. Nargisi kofta with hard boiled egg encased in spicy kofta are also popular.

In Greece and Cyprus, kofta is usually fried and eaten with tzatziki or yogurt.

In the Balkans, kofta is usually made from pork, beef or veal, or a mixture of the three. They are usually served as a meze with tarator.
