Created in 1867 by Mehmet İskender, this innovative kebab dish was brought to Istanbul by the founder’s son, İskender İskenderoğlu. They are the only family legally allowed to use the ‘İskender’ name. There is a simple difference between this and other Iskenders: the taste. The ingredients they use are all natural: the yoghurt is from Karacabey and the pide from Bursa, while the butter is specially produced. Everything is cooked on a charcoal grill. The thinly-sliced döner meat, the fresh pide under it, the traditional aubergine (herse) salad served on the side, the delicious yoghurt placed on the side or on top of the pide, the tomato paste and melted butter poured on top, all make for an intoxicating combination. It is accompanied well by ‘şıra’ (grape juice) made with special raisins from Turgutlu. After your meal, you can enjoy cheese dessert either with or without kaymak (clotted cream), or Bursa’s famous candied chestnuts. The prices aren’t bad either.
