I'm really looking forward to sharing today's post. Just writing this post and looking at these photos reminds me of how delicious the food was in Istanbul. My mouth waters when I think about it... haha! Take me back just for the food. I'm sharing a few of the amazing restaurants we visited while in Istanbul.
Have a look..
Right in the heart of Istanbul and a few minutes walk from the Sultan Ahmed Square you'll find amazing food. I loved that there were so many options along with pizza, and pasta in case you were feeling home sick.
Sarnic Premier Hotel Cafe & Restaurant
We actually had dinner at our hotel one evening as we didn't want to venture out too far. I just was having a craving for pasta and I ended up getting the spaghetti bolognese and I was blown away.
One of our favourites was actually trying fish while in Istanbul. Being so close to the Mediterranean Sea the fish was so fresh. Grilled to perfection. Along with the fish came a few different sides with tons of flavouring and spice.
Azeli Oteli Restaurant
This restaurant was a few minutes walk from the Hagia Sophia Museum and Topkapi Palace. Loved the menu options and the quaint patio area, with a cool breeze. We got to enjoy patio weather and delicious food.
Sultan Cafe and Restaurant
A few of the evenings we went for a little dessert and Turkish tea. We ordered the traditional Turkish dessert Baklava, that was so sweet and savoury. It melted as soon as you put in your mouth, very filling.
Mira Cafe and Restaurant
Another day and another fish, we loved that the fish was caught daily. Fresh fish, and table overtop of the hill with a great view. We just couldn't say no. I'm a huge fan of fish in case you didn't know.
Sultans Cafe & Restaurant
I highly recommend the fresh orange juice, it was thirst quenching. It's also right next to the Blue Mosque, so you can grab a snack and relax after exploring. Already mentioned before their traditional dessert: Baklava was yummy!
These are just a few of my favourite places we ate while in Istanbul. All the food was delicious, the staff were great and we were usually accompanied to dinner by our feline friends. Hope you enjoyed!
Thanks for reading!
