This is a real traditional night in Istanbul. You will not see professional belly dancers nor folkloric dancers; no touristic places. Instead, we will take you where the locals go to dine in a "Turkish Way." You will see and have a chance to meet local people having fun with their friends.

We start the evening in a traditional simit bakery. Simit is a bread roll, which is covered with grape molasses and sesame seeds. We take our simits and visit one of the local kiraathane', which literally means reading rooms, but in reality is a coffee shop with lots of men with mustaches playing cards or backgammon!

After having traditional Turkish tea in a traditional tea glass, we visit Ocakbasi, a traditional self-service barbecue restaurant where you sit by the fire and grill your kebabs, along with glass of Turkish raki of course!

We continue our gourmet journey passing, seeing and sniffing by some Turkish Restaurants. Finally, we end up in a meyhane, a traditional tavern where you taste meze, drink raki and listen to live Turkish music performed by gypsy musicians.

That's not all though! We will offer you a traditional "Iskembe Corbasi," a tripe soup - the same way Turks complete their evening after being sated with Turkish raki.

And no Turkish night is complete without tasting the Turk Kahvesi (Turkish coffee). You will be escorted by a professional guide who will explain to you everything that you will need to know.
