Balık ekmek[pronunciation?] is a common street food item in Turkish cuisine. It is a sandwich of a filet of fried or grilled fish (typically mackerel, or other similar oily fish), served along with various vegetables, inside a bun of Turkish bread. It is typically served on the Eminönü square straight from the boat on which it is prepared.
The name is a combination of the Turkish words balık (fish) and ekmek (bread).
