    What do they serve for dessert in Istanbul Chinese restaurants — fried gelato

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | December 11, 2007

    This is what they serve instead of fortune cookies in Istanbul Chinese restaurants: fried gelato (which is also apparently what all Chinese restaurants in Italy serve for dessert, according to my Italian downstairs neighbor).

    Because there are not a lot of Chinese immigrants in Turkey, Chinese food tends to be a bit upscale since you don’t have a non-local-language-speaking population driving down the quality. Here is a list of some of the top Chinese restaurants in Istanbul.
