Turkish tea truck offers Istanbul version of food truck trend
Turkish çay is already quite mobile. Around Istanbul, you'll spot men carrying trays of glasses to deliver to local businesses, the empty glasses are later collected or returned to the çay shops. And while coffee chains like Starbucks and Gloria Jean's are quite popular in Turkey, you won't find Turks drinking çay out of paper cups, the honor system works well for to-go orders as well.
While the food truck craze as we know it has yet to hit Istanbul, Turkish food is going mobile in other places. Pera Turkish Tacos launched late last year outside the former Tavern on the Green space in Manhattan and recently became the first food cart in the city to get a liquor license.
