Ortakoy on a Sunday


If any of you vt members have visited Ortakoy on a Sunday please pinpoint all the things one should see, buy or eat overthere.

Also give the precise directions of getting there from Eminonu, if we use the tram/train or the bus.

I have teenage daughters. What can they buy there?
I pesonally love painting and sketches done by novices. Can we get some there?

My forthcoming trip in July is shaping up very well because of wonderful feedbacks from the forum contributors.

from eminonu take the ferry ,ask once on it and many will tell you which stop , it`s obvious maybe written by the pier........dont think or make plans to what you `ll be buy from the freelance artists there/or the malls(eat or do) till you make it there, you `ll be suprised how expensive Istanbul/turkey is and it`s getting more so by the day . So best go and take it one at a day.

Travel Tips for Istanbul

General view on the city

A few bridges are dominating the view and traffic on/in the city, this next to the more than 2500 mosques erected in a city of more than 12 million inhabitants, living on two continents in this small world. The NHC Convention

Several questions

by AlperIst

Hi Martha,

Those people sitting on the stone eating are obviously strange people not choosing a green area or bench.

The heads are lamb heads. We eat cheek, brain, chin, almost all part especially prepare a soup named "head", including small parts of meats from lamb head. We also eat the lamb as a meat, served in a plate cleaned from the bones. I personally leave only the eyes of it and enjoy the rest :) It is not a typical everyday meal though.

The bottles on the trees at the cemetary are not a specific tradition. My estimation is they left the bottles there to use next time to water the flowers on and around their relatives' graves.

The lady who is shining the copper pots is called "KALAYCI" (tinner) and it is a traditional job done by gypsies. Women who live around give them their faded copper pots, they shine them and give back home. Then they move to next street to collect more.

I don't remember the name of that flower, shame on me :)

Yes, all mosques have a public fountain for the cleaning rituel before praying, but thay mostly have several taps and basins. The one in your picture seems for refreshing and more decorative.

St Antuan

by bugulma

St Antuan is situated in the middle of Istiklal Street, the longest pedestrian street of the city. It was built in 1906-1912 by Gulio Mangeri and used by Italian priests. The church is situated in the yard and the houses around are wonderful too.

Candied Nuts, Borek, Baklava, Lokum, and More!

by WulfstanTraveller about Hafiz Mustafa

Hafiz Mustafa, in business since 1864, is a wonderful, relatively little-known purveyor of wonderful treats, mostly sweet but some savoury. Since I discovered this on my second trip to Istanbul, it has became one of my aboslute all-time favourite places not only in Istanbul, but all of Turkey and inf act anywhere. It has a wide range of excellent products, many hard to find specialities, and it was the wonderful old-world charm and service of an old-style family-run business that has been going for generations.

One of their specialities is the borek/baklava class of foods. Their baklava is excellent and they have a wide range, as is their su boregi - "water borek." They also make excellent lokum (Turkish Delight) and lokma, light, crispy, syrup-soaked doughnuts that are simply outstanding. In fact, we had a hard time finding lokma elsewhere, and usually had to settle for tulumba, which are not nearly so addictive.

They also specialize in a large range of wonderful, very hard-to-find, candied fruits, nuts, and vegetables. These are all top quality, better than Iv'e had other places, and a wider range. Notable examples include the candied eggplant stuffed with walnut and the candied whole, immature walnuts (the whole, immature nute, encasing and all, is boiled in syrup and spices for hours).

On top of this, they have excellent puddings, including top-notch tavuk gogsu (milk pudding with chicken breast), many typs of chewy and hard candies, and many cakes.

It also offers a cafe on premises with a couple tables in the cramped downstairs or more in the low-ceilinged upstairs (where there is smoking, though). I provide an extra tip on that for more coverage since I love this place so much. The place is particularly good for all sorts of excellent candied fruits and nuts, baklava and its brethren, kadayif, ekmek kadayif, lokum (Turkih delight), Lokum, su boregi, lokma. It depends on how hungry you are, but a box of su boregi can provide a filling meal for a relatively small amount of money. The candied fruits and nuts are fairly pricey but certainly worth getting a small amount to try.
