Before I went to Istanbul for the first time, I made a list of all the foods I wanted to try. On this list: menemen. Eggs, peppers, tomatoes, and whatever appropriate personal enhancements the cook feels like adding. I enjoyed it for a late breakfast one morning in a small coffee shop on the Asian side of the city. And here is my attempt to make it myself. What I had there was creamy and smooth. What I made myself was somewhat granular and lumpy, more like scrambled eggs with some peppers and cherry tomatoes thrown in. Still, it was good.
