Before visiting Turkey, the only Turkish food I knew were Kebab and Pide (Turkish Pizza). After researching on what to eat in Istanbul, I have discovered a wide variety of food that Turkey has to offer. Below is a list of what to eat in Istanbul and in order of what I think is MUST-EAT as it is probably quite hard to find outside this country. Although I did not realize most are desserts!
Remy and Violette is a new café on Hutt Street. The place is quite small with a hand full of tables inside and two outside table. The décor is quite cute with a cosy French café feel. This Café has a selection of small desserts such as cakes, tarts and brownies. Most customers in the store were having coffee with a desert and happy chatting away in the cosy café.
At lunch we went to a breakfast and lunch café on Halifax Street called Number 12 Café. The café is quite close to King William Street with many business buildings around. At lunch time the place is packed with people lining up to get takeaways for lunch. As it was our day off we were casually ordering and seated our self in the spacious café. The Number 12 Café is very spacious inside and the tables were very spread out. They have a sandwich bar where you can build our own with fresh ingredients. They also have an open fridge with pre-made baguette and sandwiches.
Today we had a large group gathering at a restaurant called Faraja for breakfast. It’s located on the classy King William Road, the nicer part of Adelaide where you will find good bakeries and restaurants. We went there on Sunday morning. Parking is always easy around this restaurant with street side parking readily available. The restaurant has a cute cottage feel.
