The True Origin Of Lahmacun Is A Mystery
Lahmacun is one of the most popular fast-foods in Turkey.
For many, lahmacun immediately brings to mind Turkey's southeastern region, especially the Urfa and Gaziantep provinces where lahmacun originated. Each province has its own style of lahmacun, all of them unique with its own connoisseurs. Lahmacun is also popular in Armenia, Lebanon and Syria. Even though the dish has existed for thousands of years, it has recently started becoming popular over the past few decades. The true origin of lahmacun is a mystery, although most can agree it originated either in Turkey or Armenia. The two countries both claim creation, even though their traditional lahmacun recipes bear no resemblance to each other.
The best place to eat lahmacun in Istanbul is Tatbak, located in Istanbul's Nişantaşı district, where you can order several variations of traditional lahmacun. The most popular recipes at Tatbak are the garlic lahmacun, prepared with a dominant garlic flavor and, for those wanting a more traditional experience, cıtır lahmacun (crispy lahmacun).
