4 Reasons to Love Ramadan

One more year has passed and Ramadan (Turkish Ramazan) is again here. What is Ramadan? Well, first of all, is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. Muslims follow the lunar calendar, that is why according to the solar calendar, dates vary every year. So, if we compare it to the solar calendar, the month of Ramadan starts approximately 10 days earlier than the previous year. First day (and the last one) again may vary. Why is that so? In some countries the date of the beginning of Ramadan is set, that is when the previous month finishes, Ramadan will start, meanwhile others would start fasting when they see a moon crescent.

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!
