Kelle Şekeri

Kelle şekeri (literally, head sugar) is an irregular, compact ball of sugar you keep in your cheek to self-regulate the sweetness of your coffee or tea. Simply place a piece in between your cheek and front molars and allow your saliva and hot beverage do the rest. You no longer have to travel to eastern Anatolia to try this centuries old tradition. The Ace Hotel in midtown Manhattan serves Kelle şekeri in its lobby bar.

    Katie, I saw your coffee post and was going to ask if you’ve been to The Ace and had coffee there? NYC is experiencing a slight coffee resurgence as of late and that’s one of the good places to get a cup. Also Abraco in the East Village.

    I’ve never seen Kelle şekeri – really interesting. But sadly, I’m not a big coffee/tea drinker.
