Instead of just writing about my wonderful four days in Istanbul, I’ve decided to make a small picture gallery of food and cafes in the city.

Lachmacun (Turkish Pizza)

Stuffed potato with olives, olive paste, butter, cheese, corn, carrots, pickled cabbage, etc in Ortaköy with a view of the setting sun over the Bosphorus.
