Mmmmmm. I’m remembering the smells of home cooked meals and the warmth and coziness of Mutfak, the family-run eatery near campus in Rumeli Hisarüstü that prepares a mouth-watering selection of traditional Turkish food every day and practically never charges more than 10 lira for a plate full of goodness.
This is mantı, the Turkish version of ravioli, that is served either boiled or fried. Inside is filled with spicy meat, and is usually served with yogurt sauce (not for me – I don’t mix milk and meat) and tomato sauce. Talk about comfort food. No really, I’ve had mantı on my mind ever since it got frigid here in Philadelphia!
