And a guide to where to eat, drink and hang in Istanbul
Thank you, Yasmin, for such a vivid account of Istanbul and its foodie delights. So sorry to hear of the miscarriage, though... Life can be so painful sometimes and feel so unfair. A big hug to you.
I have only been to Istanbul once but I loved the food and the buzz of the city so much. Particular favs were mackerel under Galata bridge, wet burgers in Taksim square (probably terrible for you), pide in a back st I can't remember where but had an egg cracked into it and I was given a pat of butter to smear over it. Tea everywhere and anywhere. And culturally museum of modern art Istanbul is great. Thanks for the encouragement to slow travel Yasmin, I'm always quite shy about fitting in in different cultures.
