Tongue in Tophane

Cow's Tongue in a Butcher's Window, Tophane

Clothing shops display their wares in illuminated window displays. Why should butcher’s storefronts be any different. At this butcher in Istanbul’s Tophane quarter, you always know what offal is on offer, whether it is tripe, hearts, liver, or in this case, tongue.

    It looks like an athletic sock-just a little grass stained.

    Roseann I thought when I came on that it looked like a sock too! I am cracking up! It looks like it’s been beaded with pearls!!
