Mmmmm ... Turkish borek !!! Where have you been all my life?

rworange | Apr 13, 2007 06:52 PM

My first taste of cigaret borek (Sigara Boregi) was insanely good.

Thin layers of crackly phyllo are wrapped around a mixture of oozy feta cheese mixed with fresh parsley. The cigar-shaped borak is deep-fried. One taste and I am addicted.

Here's a picture of what a cigaret borek looks like.

Some more info about boreks:

Like one of the above links states ...

"Absolutely divine, irresistable delicate thin rolls of filo pastry, crispy on the outside and oozing with melting cheese. Incredibly "more-ish" finger food."

Can anyone tell me more about boreks?
