1001 Faces of Istanbul

Istanbul...
... one of those places difficult to define. Some would call it 'capital of the World' or 'capital of the Empire', others 'cradle of cultures' and others 'the worst place to live'; ' hell on earth'.

I've spent more than 1001 days in this city and I still find it difficult to reply to a simple question: 'What is Istanbul like?' Maybe it's because I have been here too long and I've come to realise that there is no simple answer to this question. Istanbul has many faces, many nuances if you will. It is difficult to explain them to a total stranger or a person who has never visited the city. Even though you have visited the city once, you have probably lifted only one veil from its face. If you were born here, this doesn't make you an Istanbul expert neither.

You have to get to know Istanbul slowly, day by day, page by page, neighbourhood by neighbourhood. This is actually very difficult because neighbourhoods are…

Week #1: Breakfast at Bebek


I have started 2018 with a short (after NYE party) run. We were lucky that the first day of the year was sunny and quite warm, so we decided to have a breakfast in Bebek. Our choice was Midpoint. Midpoint has many branches around Istanbul and the menu is always the same, of course, the experience depends on the staff.

What was our breakfast choice? A breakfast for two which was enough for all 3 of us. Pancakes included in breakfast and an unlimited amount of tea, besides börek, different types of cheese and veggies, dry fruits, honey, chocolate cream, homemade jams...  I love their jams and fresh bread. If 3 person share a breakfast plate for 2, price per person is less then 20 TL.

Afiyet olsun!
