Kumpir is a baked potato filling up with different ingredients such as corn, sausages, ketchup, mayonnaise, olives, pickles, salads etc. Besides, it is so popular turkish fast food. In fact, consist in a well cooked baked potato that has a fluffy interior and a crisp skin.
In Turkey, they made the potatoes wrapped with foil and baked in a special oven.

Making The Turkish Baked Potato
My criticism about Kumpir
Like this is how they made kumpir in Turkey, where they mixed the butter and kaşar cheese with a knife. Then you choose the ingredients what you like to be filled up.
In fact, I was expecting for something more tasty, because it was too soft, if I compare with other Turkish food that I ate in Istanbul. Certainly deep in flavors with a strong aroma.
However I want to put clear that is my taste, probably you eat Kumpir and you love it, keep in mind everyone has different likes. In other words in the moment that I wrote about food, I am tilting you, to taste it, but also my purpose here, it is gives my point of view and keep you aware with respect to the food I already tried.
As a result, remember always that at the moment to show, write and recommend food in my travels is, duo to makes your travel easier, simpler and besides gives you beautiful experience about food.
