Late-night crowds go wild for the delicious Islak "wet burgers" of Istanbul's Taksim Square. When a last minute trip to Turkey isn't possible, this recipe is a close second; the simple burger is packed with garlicky flavor and the easy-to-make, buttery tomato sauce gives the final burger that Sloppy Joe/meatloaf-like succulent texture that makes these burgers totally addictive.
