Description

This tour has no places of interest to visit, but you'll see much more than what would you expect! We'll take you to where people go to dine in a ‘Turkish Way’. You will have a chance to meet local people having fun with their friends. We start the evening in a traditional ‘Simit Bakery’. Simit is a bread roll, which is covered with grape molasses and sesame seeds. We take our simits and go to visit one of the local kıraathane’- which literally means reading rooms-but-in reality is a coffee shop with lots of men playing cards or backgammon! After having traditional Turkish tea in traditional tea glasses we will visit another traditional place: Ocakbaşı-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 by some Turkish Restaurants. Finally, we end up in a Meyhane, a traditional Tavern where you taste ‘Meze’, drink ‘Rakı’ and listen to live Turkish Music performed by Gipsy Musicians. Well if you think that is it for the night, you are wrong! We will offer you a traditional ‘İşkembe Çorbası’, which is a ‘Tripe Soup’ the same way Turks complete their evening after being sated with ‘Turkish Rakı’… And of course no Turkish Night is complete without tasting the Turkish Coffee. Sounds tasty huh! 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.
