Great mcmtanyel 2014-01-02 22:10

Hello Chris,
İzmit Körfezi, a familiar sight to me but not from this POV. I do not think I have wandered north of the main thoroughfare that runs right by the sea. I remember a time when that was the main highway from Istanbul to Ankara. If you have noticed (provided it's still there) an Orduevi right on that thoroughfare, that would be where we would regularly stop on the way back to Istanbul.
BTW, have you had pişmaniye yet?
Nostalgic Regards,

Default To mcmtanyel: Pişmaniye

Hi Murat

Yes I've tried pişmaniye. Not bad. A bit like cotton candy with hazelnut although I know there are many flavors. There is a whole string of pişmaniye shops a stone's throw from where I am living in Izmit out west near / in Derince
