In the light of day, perhaps a moist, garlicky hamburger sitting in a steamy case under a heat lamp doesn’t appeal. Imagine yourself at the end of a long, possibly alcohol-fueled night on Nevizade, and that islak burger probably sounds rather delicious. It is late nights that ensures the survival of this street food, a slider-size burger soaked in a flavorful tomato sauce and generally consumed a few at a time, a few lira at a time. Islak burgers are found wherever there’s nightlife, with the largest stable of them around the intersection of Istiklal and Taksim square.
