Yes it is a wonderful taste. As a Turkish citizen I love it. But there is a mistake. Iskender Kebab is not the favorite dish of Alexander the Great. Because its invention is very new. This taste is invented buy Iskender Efendi who lived in Bursa in 19 th century.

The person who mentioned that it was not a favorite dish of Alexander the Great is correct. It is too new of a dish.
