Live to Eat

Italian food has always been popular in Istanbul dining out and it is not a surprise to see Eataly at top of the list quickly. Its concept that combines eating and food shopping is a novelty and time will tell if it will keep its charm among locals and become a must stop for visitors or will wear off after a while. La Pasta e la Pizza is the restaurant we tried and liked with its good food, reasonable prices and cosy location. 

Tough decision you have to make is to select between two classics: tiramisu or gelato?

One City Classic

Politicians must be thinking that pavement stones are the one and only problem Istanbul residents have hence renewals started as we approach to the local elections in March. Somebody should tell the mayor that waking up people at 8:00 am on holiday/weekend mornings is not very clever.

My Little Red Hat

I like to wear something funny in New Year’s Eve. This year’s stuff is from Atlas Passage, one of the most colorful shopping areas for gift ware and accessories in Istanbul. I had no intention to create an optical illusion but couldn't ignore this match. Wish to look at the whole year through the eyes of the young one :)
