Steak tartar a la turca is a very old dish. The people of the Mesopotamian region have always kept this centuries-old dish alive. This dish, sometimes made with new interpretations and often made by remaining faithful to the original, is always a popular dish. Precious and natural bulgur (wheat), tomato puree, red pepper, numerous spices, ground hazelnuts and other ingredients are combined and carefully kneaded, and the typical steak tratar a la turca mixture is created. A large batch is then transformed into small steak tartar a la turca pieces, and consumed as desired.

Steak tartar a la turca has a typical shape because it is kneaded by hand. You can see the fingerprints of the kneader. Of course, at Çiğköftem, this process is carried out only under hygienic conditions and with gloves. Therefore, we can guarantee full hygiene.

According to the traditional recipe, tartar, that is, the finest minced meat, is also added to the mixture. However, for both health and hygiene reasons, we do not use meat in our steak tartar a la turca and prepare it as vegan. This is for the good of the animals, for the good of the environment and for the good of our customers… 😉

Moreover, the uncomplicated management system, low investment costs, stable growth and partnership-based support of the ÇIGKÖFTEM team encouraged me in my efforts. With the help of my dedicated team, my goal is to make ÇIGKÖFTEM one of the leading brands in the Netherlands.

Gülay GEZ & Kayahan GEZ

Owner of six ÇIGKOFTEM restaurants in Strasburg and franchise partner since 2022

I had been familiar with Çiğköftem brand before I opened my own store. I previously worked at another Çiğköftem branch in Strasbourg for 8 years. I observed how well the products were received by customers.

Practical preparation of products without the need for cooking allows us to provide fast service to our customers and also lightens our workload. Since the products do not require cooking, there is no odor and no ventilation is required. It is a smart business model with all the advantages.

We are happy to work when the products we sell are appreciated so much by customers. We opened our own branch with my wife in 2022 and we have been working happily together ever since. I hope it will be possible for everyone.
