Kokorec Anyone ?

One of my favourite Turkish "fast foods" has got to be Kokorec.

There are a number of variations on the ingredients as you go around the various stalls selling it, but basically it's lamb's intestines, stomach and other pieces of offal, grilled and seasoned. This is then served either on a plate with salad, in a durum wrap with salad, or my favourite, in half a bread loaf with salad.

For a more indepth description of the delicacy, pictures and tips on when to buy it, click on the link below BUT BE WARNED The language is extremely ripe !

Re: Kokorec Anyone ?

It's a delicacy ! Kokoretsi - Wikipedia

What I really miss from England though is Pig's Trotters and Pig's Jowl. As far as missing bacon's concerned, I'm not that bothered, but I really do miss Trotters and Jowls.

Exclamation Re: Kokorec Anyone ?

In my opinion it is absolutely disgusting - even Ibrahim would never eat it - when it is cooking it smells awful --- UGH

Re: Kokorec Anyone ?

I think the smell is delicious but I am not as brave as you, I also have an allergy to animal fat so I cannot even think about trying it. Then I don't like any of the so called delicacies, I must be a bit squeemish.

Re: Kokorec Anyone ?

..my other half introduced me to this delicacy when i moved over here in April and just like KKOB, i much prefer it in half bread (although the Izmir variety over the Istanbul version).

I loved it!! So much so that when we moved to our house and discovered a well known Kocorec restaurant on Konyaalti beach was just minutes away..we would regularly visit every few days to indulge my new found past-time!

However..him indoors neglected to inform me just what i was throwing down my throat (i asked "is it lamb"?..he dutifully answered "yes dear")..

It took another ex-pat to inform me earlier this month what hubby has been hiding from me all these months...

Im afraid that's it for me...can't ever order it again-it just makes my stomach turn...Bleurrrgh!!!

Visited the restaurant last week and whilst hubby indulged...i stuck to kofte in half bread.

Re: Kokorec Anyone ?

Thankfully KKOB did inform me exactly what this was before I even tried it.......It's a no-go for me too ) I'll stick to chicken.

Re: Kokorec Anyone ?

Oh my God NO, the smell alone would I know put me off. My other half loves Offal, and loves cow heel, pigs trotters tripe etc; etc. He keeps wanting to try sheeps head soup, when we're over in Turkey, but I couldn't sit and watch him have that, so up to now, he's not tried it.
