Week #33: Croissant, S’il Vous Plait.

The Turkish language has borrowed (and adapted) many words from other languages. Besides Arabic and Persian, French vocabulary is also quite well represented. You might have been in a rush to the train gar, or twisted your tongue trying to pronounce küaför… I have a piece of good news: kruvasan might look a silly spelling […]

Week #32: Back to (Delicious) Basics

Hello breakfast lovers! I has been a month or two since I have published my previous breakfast recommendation. In this period, an interesting and also concerning article was published in Turkish media: popular and often too big to eat serpme breakfasts are the infamous contributors to food waste in Turkey. According to Turkish Foundation for […]

Venice and La Biennale (and some eco-friendly tips)

Italy is Always a Good Idea So much has been said about Venice, can I tell you something new? I am sure that many tourist guides and internet pages cover the history of the city and must see places, that is why I won’t write many things about it. But I can confirm, that even […]

Day Trip: Serindere Canyon

Living in Istanbul is full of surprises. This city probably never sleeps and sometimes to follow its rythm can be exhausting. In summer time, many Istanbulites escape to nearby beaches in Kilyos, Şile or to a Princes Islands. By saying many, I actually mean MANY. Beaches, roads and ferries are often very kalabalık on the […]

My Camino Experience

(Part 1) It has passed a year since my Camino de Santiago experience. I have heard about the Camino (St. James Way) more than 15 years ago, however, I have never really considered on walking it. About 10 years ago, when I visited Guernica (part of Camino del Norte), stayed at albergue (a type of […]

Week #31: Eggs Benedict (Again)

Like the previous week, this week I have visited another place, which I knew more like a bar. Breakfast here did not disappoint at all! It was much better than I expected…and guess what, they do serve Eggs Benedict with salmon! I have found Eggs Benedict in a few places around Istanbul, but these were […]

Week #30: Breakfast Universe

I would probably never had gone to brekafast to this place, if my friends didn’t invite me here. Not because it looks bad, but because I would never guess that a pub actually serves breakfast. And a huge one! It has been a few months ago, that I have visited Kosmos in Beşiktaş. I remember […]

Week #29: Freshly Baked Bread

Istanbul has many bakeries, however it is not always easy to find a sourdough bread. This place not only serves a sourdough bread for breakfast, but also bakes it. It is served fresh and warm…and you can even buy a loaf of bread and take it home.

Week#28: Big yet Affordable Breakfast Plate

I don’t know if it’s is to blame the free fall of the Turkish Lira or something else for the breakfast price increase. Whatever the reason, it is not very likely that the prices will go down. Luckily one can still find affordable and big breakfast plates. Personally, I do prefer good quality ingredients, fresh […]
