Pretty empty as we stepped inside, soon arrived the colourful fresh salad, the beans in olive oil, the traditional chicken dish paired with Turkish flat bread and the two desserts. Truly sumptuous as the first Turkish meal, I enjoyed every bit of the savoury dishes, but just so little of the really sweet and rich dessert. Still, a meal to rave about.
Dinner was the only thing for day, we then checked into Taksim Goren Hotel and my room was on the 7th floor facing the busy street. I showered and slept off, the next morning after the buffet breakfast, off we left for sightseeing.
Next: Bosphorus cruise.
