Orhan Pamuk's "A Strangeness in my Mind" introduced me to boza. So while in Istanbul for the Marathon and taking advantage of a cold afternoon we indulged and enjoyed it at a place which shouts "tradition"! Don't miss it! It will surprize you!

"Boza" is very delicious. Waiters are very kind. There is a small stove and it is a very nice atmosphere. You can add cinnamon and roasted chickpea to your boza. You will addict :)

We visited first thing in the morning in July, then walked up to the Kandilar Pazari (women's market), around the neighborhood and back down to the grand bazaar. That was a great day. The boza shop opens at 8am every day. The building and interior...More

I can see why Attaturk came here - delicious brew made from millet - very mildly alcoholic. Very filling with a citrus after taste (could this be from the lactic acid produced from the fermentation process?). Amazing value (3 Turkish lire per serve). Well worth...More

A little out of the way of most tourist attractions (but not too far away from the famous Süleymaniye Mosque) I came across this unique tasting drink that is served in this historical place. My boyfriend took me here for the first time at the...More

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
