"Van kahvaltısı" (Van breakfast) is famous around Turkey. So when in Van, have breakfast. And have breakfast we did. Oh, what an orgy of food it was! We ordered enough for "two people," and six of us barely ate half of it.
Fortunately, Yonca suggested we pack it up and take it on the road with us, so we were eating breakfast all day!
