Istanbul - brief overview of culinary highlights

tahini is common in desserts (ie: tahini helva) or for breakfast there is a food called pekmez which is a very thick fruit syrup which is mixed with tahini and spread on bread, Also you may find hummus which is of course tahini mixed with chick peas. Other then that you can pretty much assume you wont see it... but i must add a caveat in that this is from the perspective of Istanbul cuisine. in other parts of the country the case may vary.

Istanbul - brief overview of culinary highlights

asking for tahini on your kebap in istanbul will surely bring out the "weird foreigner stare" as much as any other sauce. sorry, but i agree, bring your own or find one of the few places that serve Euro-style kebap "MR. Kebap in Sirkeci for example.
