I'm wondering if anyone here has encountered the "Turkish bagel" known as Simit anywhere in Chicago.
I was traveling in Turkey a few years ago, and everywhere you go, vendors are selling these sesame seed covered bread rings - in carts, on long sticks, in bakeries, virtually everywhere all over the country and especially in Istanbul.
Besides being deliicous, I was hoping to find some to take to a family gathering at Thansgiving, to surprise by brothers who traveled with me. But I have never seen them in Chicago. Anywhere.
