Until the next summer arrives let's enjoy this cold winter

Lunch with Murat at Hünkar
estimated date:June-July 2010
Actually i use to go to Hünkar very often
than something has changed
suddenly it was very expensive and the food not so great
i guess i wanted to give it a try
and i wasn't dissapointed at all
so if you want to try traditional turkish cuisine go to Hünkar

Artichoke cooked with olive oil and some tiny vegetables(potatoes,carrots and peas)
Spinach(cooked with olive oil,onions garlic...)Chicken and tomato rice
Türlü(a mixture of vegetables all cooked with olive oil
(onions,potato,green pepper,haricot,carrots...)

the prices were ok
the owners(2 brothers)just split
but still very good for lunch

Turkish and İslamic Arts Museum

From wikipedia.org:Free encyclopedia

The Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum (Turkish: Türk ve İslam Eserleri Müzesi) is a museum located in Sultanahmet Square in Eminönü district of Istanbul, Turkey. Constructed in 1524, the building was formerly the palace of İbrahim Pasha, who was the first grand vizier to Suleiman the Magnificent.

The collection includes notable examples of Islamic calligraphy, tiles, and rugs as well as ethnographic displays on various cultures in Turkey, particularly nomad groups. These displays recreate rooms or dwellings from different time periods and regions.
