Another specialty of Gaziantep is a type of sweet börek called Katmer. We went to a specialty shop called Metanet Katmer to try the dessert. It starts with a mini tiny ball of dough, pulled and pulled by hand, and thrown in the air like a pizza disk. When it reaches its paper thin form, it is sprinkled with pinches of kaymak (a stuffing made from milk and a little semolina), pistachio and sugar. Then, it is folded like an envelope and butter is brushed on top. Finally, the whole thing goes into a hot oven. To really appreciate katmer, it must be eaten right out of the oven, while it’s still warm.
Next up, we finished off with a chicken dürüm at a very popular local restaurant called Dürümcü Recep Usta. It’s essentially the Turkish version of fast food. Cheap ($1.50 for an entire dürüm), delicious, and filling!
