McTurco

McTurco

Recently I’ve seen a few people on “place blogs” from around the world posting about the specialty foods at their local McDonalds. In Turkey we have pretty standard fare, Big Macs and Quarter Pounders and all that, but we do have a couple of specialty items, most notably the McTurco sandwich. It comes in two varieties— etli acı soslu (with meat [i.e. lamb] and spicy sauce), or tavuklu (with chicken). I’ve tried the lamb one, and though it tastes pretty similar to other McDonalds sandwiches, it’s not half bad as fast food goes… though I’d never go so far as to put the word “Turkish” anywhere near it.

    Sorry Ellen, I don’t even know who Dina is – I found the image using a Google search. It was pretty much a random find.

    Sorry I can’t be of more help.
