What makes it different?
The one single magic ingredient sahlep which is from the root of the wild orchid. I believe other Turkish ice creams also contain this as well as mastic but this particular one contains more.

And then nearby I spied two of these Maraş Ice Cream stands. They are not usually there so I guessed they’d come to set up with the expectation of plying their trade in the hours after sunset when everyone is out and about relaxing after a hard day of fasting. I remember being surprised to discover that Ramazan evenings are fun!
