Highligts: Fireside, Tavern, Taksim Square & İstiklal Street

No touristic places - but you will see much more than that! We will take you where 'real people' go to dine in a 'Turkish Way'. You will see and 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 visit one of the local kıraathane'- which literally means reading rooms-but-in reality is a coffee shop with lots of men with  mustaches playing cards or backgammon! After having traditional Turkish tea in a traditional tea glasses we  visit another traditional place: Fireside - which is a traditional self-service barbecue restaurant where you sit  by the fire and grill your kebabs, along with glass of Turkish Raki of course! We continue our gourmet journey passing, seeing and sniffing by some Turkish Restaurants. Finally, we end up in a tavern – 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 'a complete' without tasting the 'Türk Kahvesi'-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
