Ainsley Harriott's Street Food - S1 Ep1 - Istanbul
Istanbul is the city that bridges Europe and Asia but what does that mean for a traveller looking for great places to eat? On the European side of this city you can sit on a tiny table by the water’s edge and eat simply grilled fish and take tea from a passing cart. Or you can take the ferry to the Asian side and eat seasonal village food, Loquats stuffed with cumin spiced meatballs and little plates of perfect Mezze. In the backstreets, a local food blogger helps Ainsley discover the world of 'Esnaf lokantası', simple worker’s cafes, places where the menu never changes but that doesn’t put Ainsley off cooking his own, spicy version of the local kofta kebab for the locals. After making a classic fattoush salad to go with a roasted sheep head, and accidentally getting caught up in a noisy football crowd that became a tear-gas fuelled riot, Ainsley heads off to find the mysterious cig kofta - a raw meatball dish. Banned from the streets in its original form for being too dangerous to eat, Ainsley finally tracked one down and discovers that the chef is probably more dangerous than the kofta itself.
