Description

Discover the more unusual aspects of Turkish cuisine!
Walk through the colourful backstreets and hustle and bustle of historic Eminönü . You will be introduced to all kinds of unusual foods, very possibly tastes that you have never encountered before.
Talking about white cheese, olives, pickles, baklava, milk puddings, and Turkish Delight, the walk will take you through traditional neighbourhoods where you will get the feeling that time has stood still. Not only will you eat street food, you will enter the little local restaurants to enjoy their particular specialities. 
If you have a hankering for the old Istanbul resonant with the cries of street vendors, shops owned by the same family for generations, timeless scenes of men enjoying a glass of tea outside on the pavement, porters humping impossible burdens on their backs, this walk is for you!
A delicious late lunch will be served in the Kurdish part of the city.

Dilek

I was born in a small city called Bolu in 1980. I lived in different parts of the country like Bolu, Ankara, Antalya. I graduated from Ankara University Tour Guide Departmant in 2001. Since 2003, I have been guiding people from all over the world. I can speak English, Dutch and Turkish. I live in the old part of Istanbul. Being the daughter of two qualified chefs, I am especially interested in the Culinary Culture of Turkey. I love taking guests through the food routes that I created and sharing our culture through tasting. Currently, I am studying History at the Istanbul University, also learning Ottoman and Spanish languages. I acted in two theatre plays and i am interested in pilates, zumba and salsa.
