Dubbed “Turkish crepes” by some, these stuffed flatbreads are served fresh in Turkey’s many outdoor markets - watching them being made is almost as much fun as eating the finished product!
What is it?
Made with yeast-based dough, gauzelike are rolled flat, stuffed, and cooked on a hot griddle until small brown spots or ‘eyes’ (‘go’ is Turkish for eye) appear. The large pancakes are then generally chopped into squares for individual consumption. Common fillings include minced (ground) lamb or beef, spinach, feta cheese, potatoes and mushroom.
