Istanbul Eats

Here are a few food snaps of food around this vibrant and friendly city-

Fresh fish outside a restaurant

Traditional milk pudding

Macarons at a bakery

Fresh orange juice

Fresh fish sandwich we have had quite a few!!

Turkish coffee

A yogurt drink very popular here you will often see business men sipping this at lunch

Baklava oh wow I love this!!

Lambs heads now this is not for me I was speaking to an American who lives here so said the cheeks are good they also eat the brain!! And make a kebab with organ meats wrapped around the intestines it's good to use all the whole animal though I guess

Fruit stalls

busy street, there are so many cafes here

Ladies making traditional flat bread

Cakes !

Fruit growing outside balcony I like this tastes and looks like a white raspberry sold in the streets

Yummy bread

Roasted corn
