The only authentic Turkish street food in Krakow? If you’ve spent more than 5 minutes in Krakow, that might sound a bit surprising, considering that you can buy a döner on every corner around here. While I agree that there’s nothing better than a giant wrap, drenched in sauces and filled with way too intensely seasoned meat, at 3 am, it doesn’t have much to do with authentic Turkish cuisine. And it doesn’t taste as good in the light of day.

Thanks to Ottamam, Krakow now has its first truly Turkish street food spot! And it’s mind-blowingly good – the flavors are exactly as I remember from my travels around Turkey. Ottamam’s staple dish is tantuni – prepared in a special pan, spiced with the chef’s own spice mix. It is served in a homemade lavash with tomato, onion, and parsley. Trust me it needs nothing more. You can also try Adana kebap and kofta meatballs (meat and bulgur-based vegan options are available). Flush it down with some ayran yogurt in a truly Turkish fashion and you’re good to go. Unless you have room for dessert (and let’s face it, there’s always room for dessert) – in this case, baklava, Turkish tea and coffee are awaiting!

Into the bargain, Ottamam is very strategically located right across from the National Museum and Kino Kijów cinema, and only 10 minutes from the main square. Make sure to pay a visit and get transported right to the streets of Istanbul!
