Turkish bagel, originally known as "Simit" is highly popular in the streets of the Lebanese city Tripoli.
Mohamed Alemuddin, a street vendor, came up with the idea of making Turkish bagel in Tripoli.
"I saw people selling Turkish bagel when I used to live in Europe. I decided to do the same business when I returned to my country," Alemuddin said.
There are many streets vendors selling Turkish bagel in Tripoli and these figures will increase, he added.
Turkish bagels are often sold by street vendors, who either have a bagel trolley or carry it in a tray on their head. Turkish bagel is generally served plain, or for breakfast with tea, fruit preserves, or cheese.
