#Lokma is a fried dough served with sugar syrup.
It has a huge place in Anatolian culture, since this #dessert is served on the street for free and for all after a family member passes away. The reason for that can be traced to the belief of encouraging people to think well after yne deceased. There is a saying explaining this ritual "tatlı yiyelim tatlı konuşalım", meaning "let's eat sweets and talk of sweey things"
So this particular fried though is just more than a dessert. It has a fundamental place in Antolian culture. And it's super tasty as well! ;) #delicious #localfood #izmirlokmasi #lokma #egecesme #cityofizmir #izmirgurme #gurmeturkiye #travelandfood
