Hi , everyone .
This is a welcome to Turkish food and travel in this episode , we're going to take a look at the preparations for Ramadan on the streets where they shop , how they get prepared shops , the market right now , I'm in the local area where I lived for 10 years .
There is a street called near mall .
It's one of the very local traditional area to buy your Amazon shopping .
So first we're gonna take a look at there and then we will go to the spice bazaar famous in .
Now let's go , if you can collect fresh grape leaves , I have a video on how you can preserve them .
Check the links .
It , I do .
Right buddy .
So we just crossed the famous Malta shopping street .
You saw all kinds of dates people trying to buy in a reasonable price .
It already got high .
Every time you go , it gets more higher .
People still buy it thinking that it's going to be the cheapest price of the year ahead .
She didn't go to gossip .
You have done .
If you sold one when I last came , I made these porches and put it into freezer for these times .
Got you got you .
It's the next day and we are in eminent in front of the spice bazaar .
It's from 17th century .
If you are coming to Istanbul , one of the first places to visit as a tourist is here also , it's a very local place where you shop for many things like spices , delicacies in Kaku .
Along the bosphorus , they used to buy fish .
It's famous with the fish and bread but from here , so let's begin .
That's , that's one they all got .
You , you done guys , you , you see many national channels also come here to feel up as you see .
314.04 --> 378.54
Um You see , I used to , I , I come here to do nice .
If I would come during Ramadan , I wouldn't be able to taste it .
It's the last couple of days to taste sugar that I Yeah , after a while , isn't it luxurious ?
It's a historical fountain .
You can just grab taste from the cheeses , olives and then wash your hands here .
Yeah , that , so you see there are a lot of things for breakfast , the cheeses , olives and one of them is the these dried eggplants and peppers .
It is for making stuffed peppers .
I have the recipe just check for the link .
It's very delicious and flavorful , especially when you make with dried eggplants and peppers .
These are called or sweet .
It has Walnuts in it .
Dip in syrup .
I cannot talk because of another shop for pickles .
Of course , the tomato and red is , it's fine this drink but we still have drink .
I again have the recipe but if you sell it is very expensive .
It's like 1500 Turkish right now .
But you can buy it from here .
They don't sell outside turkey because it's very less .
You cannot find it to the spice .
In many videos I told you about the spice , especially the peppers .
There are many different kinds of could be be sweet and hot .
Extra hot .
Too much is sour , especially good for Doma and salads .
This kind of mix .
But I would prefer to buy this one .
I don't go too much with mixes but the plain ones are better .
I think dried mint also very common to use in Turkish cuisine .
This is not , this is more smoke , smoke flavor .
It is used for chi in southern part of they use it a lot but they also have smoked paprika there .
Back to the street right now , I can smell the Turkish coffee .
It's a must to buy from here for locals and also for tourism .
You hear me good .
Not allow , didn't have much time left .
We needed to go back home .
My daughter had an exam so we decided to eat here .
It's a small buckle .
We usually come here when we go to shopping with my mother in law .
My mom , it's an old place for us to stop what you and then we are in .
It's about almost five PM .
I had some shopping .
We can have our dessert .
My daughter wants to have .
I don't know , she might change it behind me .
You see the mosque here ?
It looks so beautiful .
It's just , it's very shiny .
And behind me there is a famous candy shop .
Very authentic from 19 .
I think they have Turkish delights .
All different kinds of candies cookies .
I don't know what this is .
This one almond paste .
Actually , I have this recipe .
I have the recipe po po we gonna continue to hear .
Yeah , you , this looks very appealing but it's not traditional .
My name is like now he's thank you .
The sweet shop was very crowded .
So we decided to come here to eat in open air with the sand of the sea .
It's been a long time .
I haven't tried .
He's very crunchy but not that much .
It would have been nice to have some tea before we leave , but it's already almost 5 30 .
I'm going to do my afternoon prayer and then head back home .
It's going to take probably another two hours with the traffic .
So I have to go .
Ok , I am at train station .
