What is the leafy green that was on top of my pizza at Lokal (near the Galata Tower in Istanbul)?
Baby mustard greens.
Looks similar to a cabbage leaf.
Was it peppery? Looks like mature arugula.
What is the "eeew"?
It was pretty gross. The leaves were very thick and it was very bitter. It wasn't an appreciated pizza topping (though the rest of the pizza was good).
Arugula can be VERY peppery, but I wouldn't describe it as bitter. I'm not convinced it's arugula, but can't tell you what it is!
