World's Strangest Airport Attractions
Taste “Chewy” Ice Cream
Where: Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport, International Terminal, roving cart
Details: Turkish ice cream is stickier and chewier than its Western counterpart—it stretches. The secret ingredient is salep, the ground tubers of wild orchids. Available in chocolate or vanilla, sold from a cart and twirled on long-handled paddles, this is a completely authentic Turkish ice cream experience: even the most discerning Turks give it two thumbs up.
