28. December 2013 – 2. January 2014: Restaurant La Torre @ Le Méridien Etiler

I think I have never seen such a full-fledged breakfast buffet like in the Restaurant La Torre in the Le Meridien Etiler. The selection is not only huge but it is also very rich, aromatic and flavourful. The buffet offer starts with something I have never ever had for breakfast – sushi! The various Japanese […]

1. January 2014: Restaurant Nusr-Et Steak House

The experience at the Nusr-Et Steak House was definitely a good one – but there is one thing you have to be sure about – you have to be patient if you want to dine here. We had a table booked for 8pm and we waited around 45 minutes before we were finally led to […]

31. December 2013: Latitude Bar @ Le Méridien Etiler

The most typical dish on the menu is the “Meze Tray” containing “spicy tomato paste, humus, muhammara, circissian chicken, mint yoghurt, eggplant salad, fava bean paste and wrapped wine leaves” (29.00 TRL). There were quite a few things I have never tried before and of those, the muhammara, is absolutely tasty. Overall, the selection is […]

I started the traditional Ottoman degustation menu with wine pairing (210.00 TRL) with a glass of “Sarafin, Sauvignon Blanc, 2012” (27.00 TRL) which was smooth. The degustation menu started then with a “Wedding soup with lamb, sautéed almond, young vegetable and dried mint oil”. The soup was thick, heavy and aromatic at the same time […]

30. December 2013: Şino Café

The Şino Café is located close to the Ortaköy harbour which is quite an artsy and interesting bazaar like area. Randomly walking by looking for a place to smoke a shisha, we were not disappointed. The Turkish Tea (3.00 TRL) was tasty and not too strong. Without having asked for anything to eat we were […]

30. December 2013: Restaurant Happily Ever After

As a starter I had “Edamame” (14.00 TRL) not really knowing what I was about to order and I think I had it like that for the first time in my life and I must say that it was actually quite aromatic and good. And actually even the olives served were better then the ones […]
