DINING OUT IN A TURKISH WAY

Pick up from your hotel around 18:30pm. We start the evening in a traditional 'Simit Bakery'. Simit is a bread roll covered with grape molasses and sesame seeds. We take our simits and visit one of the local kiraathane which literally means reading rooms. In reality, it is a coffee shop with lots of men with mustaches playing cards or backgammon. After having traditional Turkish tea in a traditional tea glasses we visit another traditional place: Ocakbasi which is a traditional self-service barbecue restaurant where you sit by the fire and grill your kebabs, along with a glass of Turkish Raki of course! We continue our gourmet journey passing, seeing, and sniffing by some Turkish Restaurants. Finally, we end up in a Meyhane – a traditional Tavern where you taste mezes, drink Turkish Raki and listen to live Turkish Music performed by Gipsy Musicians. If you think that is it for the night, you are wrong! We will offer you a traditional iskembe corbasi which is a tripe soup, the same way Turks complete their evening after being sated with Turkish Raki. And of course, no Turkish Night is a complete without tasting the Turk Kahvesi-Turkish Coffee. And to give it quality, you will be escorted by a professional guide who will explain to you everything that you will need to know. Return to your hotel around midnight.
