We ventured across the Bosphorus to the Asian continent today.

Food vending carts are common all over Istanbul wherever pedestrians are present. This one has sesame seed covered bread rings. Roasted chestnuts are also common.

The other day I asked DaddyBird if we’ve ever had bad lentil soup. The answer is still “no.”

DaddyBird tried the cig kofte (chee coff tay) which is raw meat mixed with bulgar and spices.
