Istanbul


I had the opportunity to go visit a friend in Istanbul, Turkey last month- an ate my way through the city [within days]

Being Israeli, a lot of the food in Turkey is similar- though there are so many amazing, unique dishes and flavor profiles that don’t come close to anything I’ve seen before. It was very interesting to experience them, and try so much in such a short time.

I’ve been trying my luck with Simit since I’ve left- but no luck thus far! Lokma cafe was definitely my favorite- probably because I loved breakfast more than anything else. Kaymak is a clotted-cream and honey mixture that is eaten during that time, usually with a bread such as Simit. For me, it is the perfect start to a day!

Happy Travels!
