Here is a little compilation of my favourite things to have when in Istanbul. Of course there are so many other things to try so be curious and enjoy!
So tea in England is a pretty big deal, but in Turkey it is to another level! It is their tap water almost. And in the risk of being controversial (my English friends may kill me for this) I actually prefer Turkish tea! No need for milk but add a little bit of sugar.
The strongest coffee you will ever have. It does the job on a morning when you need a kick. Just so you are aware though, the coffee grains are in the cup so do not drink it too fast otherwise you will have a rather unpleasant and grainy surprise.
Sold in the street. Head to one of the cute little vintage carts you will find across the town and buy one of these ring-shaped bread for a breakfast on the go or a mid-afternoon snack!
- Turkish delights
Well obviously! I don’t have much more to say apart from the fact that they are delicious and the flavors you will find in Istanbul’s bazaars are endless!
See my comment above 🙂
The traditional Turkish breakfast made of scrambled eggs, vegetables and spices. It is served boiling hot with bread to dip in. If you want to have a delicious one, make sure you go there!
