Tuzlu Tavuk

Check out this flaming chicken! It's called tuzlu tavuk, or salty chicken. Basically, they stuff a chicken with rice, pack salt around it, and roll it out to the table on fire. 


Actually, the fire is for show - the chicken is cooked in an oven beforehand. Check out this video of them busting that baby out of it's salty prison.

And then the inside! The rice is sweet, counterbalancing the salty chicken.


Oh yeah, and the chicken buster-outer pulled the bones out before he handed the chicken over. Amazing.
