The Story

The History of the Gözlemes

Gözlemes had a humble beginning as a common breakfast food or snack in Turkey. In the late 20th century, they began popping up commonly as fast food in Turkish markets with tons of different toppings and fillings and were unsurprisingly wildly popular. Due to this popularity they slowly spread around the world and can commonly be found today and Turkish restaurants or food stalls.
