Fazil Bey'in Turk Kahvesi
Kadikoy, Istanbul.

A fun night out in Istanbul begins with a tram ride from the Blue Mosque to Eminonu, followed by a ferry to the bustling suburb (a tautology in Istanbul) of Kadikoy.


The first destination is Ciya Sofrasi Restaurant, reviewed by Katherine Martinelli.

The food is delicious and the atmosphere lively. We had mezzes and lamb and sour cherries. We were lucky to come across people dancing in the square opposite the ferry terminal.
