If hearing “Turkish delight” conjures images of Narnia, move those aside: Sevim Cumpian‘s truck is a lot more than white witch treats. Cumpian took the cooking skills she learned in Turkey and brought them to the streets of Edmond (again, just don’t think about Narnia), just outside Oklahoma City. Today, she’s slinging Turkish specialties like doner sandwiches, handmade soups, and baklava.
Everything you’ll eat from Turkish Delight is made from scratch, including her cacik (a Turkish yogurt sauce like tzatziki). Her doner wraps are things of beauty; bursting with chicken, lettuce, tomato, parsley, and naturally, cacik. You’ll want to check out the tarva, too — a sort of Turkish stew, full of juicy chicken thighs, tomatoes, and peppers, smothered in cheese. And duh, you’ll be finishing up with some baklava for dessert. Need this now? We don’t blame you. Book Turkish Delight to cater your next event.
Lahmacun — A round, thin piece of dough covered in minced meat, parsley, tomatoes, onions, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and other spices, and baked to perfection. Turkish pizza, if you will. (We know we will).
