Late night indulgence...



It was a must, after a long walk around Istanbul, to stop at a cafe before heading back to the hotel for a sip of Turkish coffee or Turkish black tea or Apple tea served in a small cute cup or unique shape glass...interestingly that the coffee is more expensive than the tea...


...sweet black Turkish coffee, served with a glass of water...

...Apple tea...sweet apple smell...

...another sweet black tea in a small unique-shaped glass...

...aaarrgghhh...sweet creamy black cherry cake...

...the coffee too was served with famous turkish delights...

Marvellous old boy.
Chai and Uzo at the Central Plaza goes down well with me.

Danial,
You can be a tempting devil. You made us fight harder to resist the temptations of visiting Turkey and indulging in its splendour at the expense of parting our money from the pocket... I may pass Turkey for now but I'll definitely find the equivalent of the black cherry cake here in Dubai.

So you have altered the setting here in your blog, dark to white and right to left. This accentuates your photos even more!

Have a great day!

Hazia said...

Hmm.. I never had Turkish delight served with my coffee while in Istanbul. Maybe because I always have Cay instead, LOL!
