In Istanbul, we entered into a restaurant which serves a very delicious Chicken Fajita dish. It was brought to our table with this black metal skillet and from a distance you can hear the loud sizzling. Beside were the warm tortillas and condiments such as sour cream, salsa, pico de gallo and jalapeño.
