Bourekas Penso

Vegetarian Bakery

When one mentions Levinsky Market, instantaneously, the name Bourekas Penso comes to mind. Since 1965, Penso has sold homemade Turkish bourekas, large and authentic, prepared on site, from the kneading of the dough through serving them hot from the oven. Cheese, spinach, and kashkaval (Italian sheep’s milk cheese) are among some of the popular choices. There are delicious add-ons available, including hard-boiled eggs. Patrons often leave with a loaf of freshly baked bread as well, and wash it all down with an ayran, a satisfying, Turkish yogurt drink.
