Otlu peyniri is a cheese from Van, a city in eastern Anatolia set on a lake of the same name. It is pungent and super salty and the herbs mixed into it add a garlicky flavor. I had a big helping of it this morning at Van Kahvaltı Evi in Cihangir where I met my friend Şemsa for breakfast. Between otlu peyniri, white cheese, string cheese, and kaymak, we certainly got our recommended daily allowance of dairy today.
