Food Tasting – Gastronomy Evening Tour in Istanbul.
Istanbul nights invite you to the vibrant night scene of Taksim. For those who wonder how the city lives past 6pm, amazing night food specialities, bustling streets, raki, music, local style entertainment and a legendary night is all packed up in one exciting night food tour.
Istanbul is one of those cities, where life continues after the sunset. In our view, an Istanbul stay without a night out, whether it is for tasting or for partying, is an incomplete Istanbul stay. Taksim area, which is the central entertainment hub of the city, is the obvious choice for the night tours in the city. While majority of night tours concentrate on either the food or entertainment part of the tour, we choosed to design a more balanced tour for the following reasons:
- There is a strong night food culture in the Istanbul, especially around Taksim area. Here you can find inventions of Taksim food scene, food that is meant to be socialized, backstreet gems known by the conscious night foodie etc. etc. We are convinced that these exciting food options deserve attention in every night tour.
- Our experience shows that with every single bite of wonderful Taksim food you will get more and more uplifted. Strolling through the bustling streets of Taksim will add up to your energy. The obvious question is why not end the night with a legendary entertainment while you are in Taksim. Our venue for this purpose is a classic Turkish tavern. We believe that a good quality Turkish tavern should be the end point of every night tour in Istanbul. First of all it is unique and local, but maybe more importantly it is for everyone: Regardless of your age, music taste, dancing capabilities, we believe(and experience) that there is no way that you are not going to be moved by the tavern rhythms and withstand the urge to join the dancing crowd between the tables.
