Istanbul is definitey an amazing city with tons of historical sights but what about the real local life ? Immerse yourself on this Istanbul Asian Side food tour to blend in with and eat just like locals.
The day will start in front of Kadıköy Ferry Pier at 14:00 and first experience will be a unique Turkish breakfast which is called menemen. This traditional Turkish dish is made of scrambled eggs with tomatoes, cheese, green peppers and spices. It is extra-delicious when served up with some good crusty bread.
While exploring the lively Bahariye Street as real locals do we will give a break to taste some bezes, Turkish-style merengues, in a little patisserie which is in action since 1958.
Walking along the famous bar street of Kadıköy, your guide will be telling stories about the daily life in Kadıköy. Next food stop will be a Kadıköy classic; mussels followed by some fish and bread in the middle of the market. While the fisherman keep yelling around to sell the fresh fish we will be having our pickle juices from a 85 year old store which is only focusing on pickles, nothing else.
Since Kadıköy is center of art, the murals of the town are also must-to-see. We will walk past some of them just before heading to taste the traditional Turkish dishes at a world-famous restaurant which was also on air in Netflix’s famous Chef’s Table.
Turkish coffee is always best after a perfect meal. The coffee is prepared using very finely ground coffee beans without filtering and it is perfect for the ones who love it strong!
After all, it’s time to indulge ourselves with the famous Turkish dessert; Baklava!
