Culinary adventures in Istanbul- June 9, 2012

As promised, here are pics from our food journey in Istanbul. Unfortunately, I didn’t photograph everything we ate, but there are some interesting things here….enjoy!

Freshly caught from the Bosphorus, waiting to be relished!

We ate sea bass bass inside salt and then set on fire in the end!

They then cracked open the salt and extracted the baked fish, stuffed with shrimp!

Final cut!

Fruit halwas, Turkish style!

The mixed flavors of the helva on a stick!! Sweet and gooey…..

Street food on the go!

Sweet shop….felt right at home among rows of mithai like stuff!

And good old bhutta…available everywhere.

I love expressing myself and feel strongly that cities should have spaces for everyone--rich, poor, young, old, healthy and sick, happy or depressed--we all need to work towards making our cities liveable and lovable communities.
