One of the dishes you will try during this tour is Midye, the mussels as we know them in English. Freshly caught from the sea, these mussels are boiled and stuffed with rice and black pepper. One of the key characteristics of this recipe, is that it maintains the taste and aromas of the sea! During this tour, expect also to taste the infamous Kokorec. This popular dish is made of lamb intestines, and despite its unusual ingredients the flavour is going to leave you speechless! Kokorec, in Istanbul’s food stalls, is served as a sandwich, and if you wish, you can add salad. Of course, any food tour is not complete without pilav! In fact, this is a typical side-dish, and locals enjoy pilav with almost every main course. Pilav looks like rice, but it’s cooked with butter that gives an extra touch of taste.

Best food ever!!! I’m travelling often, and I kind of knew that this city is a gastronomic destination. I booked the tour mainly as I wanted to visit some cool places with a guide, you know, kind of inside info situation! We went to different places, and I could see from the atmosphere that they were the authentic ones. No tourists traps! The food I tried, oh wow, that was phenomenal! It appears that Istanbul blends different ingredients and cultures, and ends up with a mind blowing result. That was the most delicious things I’ve done in Turkey!!!
