“Baklava by far is the best dessert of Turkish kitchen for me. It is one of the product of our kitchen which i feel lucky for. Almost every place with food sells baklava but actually all these are not Baklava, just some food with sugar. If you want to have the real baklava this is the right place to have it. Go here and taste the real Turkish Baklava. I love everything in here but my very favourite ones are midye Baklava and Baklava with pistachio. ”
“A hidden gem that you probably won't find yourself :) Antiochia is city located on the south of Turkey very popular with the cuisine specialties, know as the best meat and mezze of the Country. This restaurant is very popular in the neighbourhood with the dishes, taste and also the decoration. The owner is always there monitoring the chefs, welcoming and chatting the guests himself which I personally think is a big plus for consistency for years. The prices are reasonable including the wine and other drinks”
“One of my absolute favorite places in the amazing neighborhood of Cihangir. Susam Cafe is a must-visit. For a chill breakfast, working day, dinner, wine or cocktails. It got it all. Sophisticated but relaxed surroundings & and interesting, interlectual visitors. ”
