Less is more ... rather than overwhelming you with volumes of travel tips, here is a specific list of exclusive recommendations with Mr & Mrs Crystal's stamp of approval.



For a true taste of Istanbul take a walk down Nevizade Sokak to some of the best “meyhanes” (Istanbul’s version of a Mediterranean tapas bar) in town. As you pass through the Cicek Pasaji (“Flower Passage”) alleyways you will notice the street party atmosphere - outdoor diners, street vendors and roaming musicians. Bocuk, a small rustic meyhane that is consistently full, specialises in superb Armenian street food dishes and features live fasil music. The more dishes the better as it is all about sharing.
