Days are long, spring has come...
Surely we want to spend more time outside and it is the perfect time to explore new places in town...
So where should we go?
If you'd like to have some good Aegean Cuisine, then you should definitely try the new branch of Roka Bahçe (well-known restaurant from Alaçatı/ Çeşme) in Pera Taksim which recently opened as Roka Pera in place of Italian Restaurant Da Vittoria. Roka Pera serves a rich variety of vegetables and greens and all ingredients come from famous Alaçatı organic market. Asparagus, Crispy Artichokes and Fried Zucchini Flower and Stuffed Grilled Calamari are highy recommended!
If you are looking for a new meyhane to go, then you may try Çukurcuma'da Bahar that has been opened by one of the x-partners of Hayat Restaurant in Cihangir. Çukurcuma'da Bahar has a really nice patio perfect for this time of the year and there's also live Rembetiko music during some week days as well as Friday and Saturday nights.
In case you are a beer lover and you'd like to have some snacks accompanied by a good variety of beer then you can go to United Pub in Beşiktaş that serves 54 types of different beers from all over the World.
And finally, if you are interested to explore a posh restaurant & bar then you may try Fenix in Etiler. Check out the details of Fenix from last week's posts! But let me warn you that their lines are constantly busy and is really hard to get a reservation with short notice!
Just stay outside and enjoy the spring! :)
