Gaziantep is famous for its baklava and this batch of twenty was expensive.
Abed filled his mouth with a piece of the baklava, I needed to get our conversation going.
He shrugged and took another piece of the baklava, considering it in his fingers for a moment.
He said nothing about the baklava, but stood at the end of our table, his eyes resting on me, as if I should order.
1650s, from Turkish.
