With an egg or two slipped on top, menemen is a dish that sustains truckers and sailors across Turkey, somewhere between breakfast and a snack lunch. It concentrates all that’s simple, delicious and colourful about the eastern Mediterranean. Without eggs, the peppery dish makes a good hot accompaniment to rice and meat, or can be eaten cold as a meze.
