Hello everyone! 😀 I’m finally back with a second Travel Snippet, yay!


After enjoying some cake at Frankfurt Airport, I had to board my transfer flight to Istanbul, Turkey. (Germany looks absolutely gorgeous from above, by the way.) 🙂

Once arriving at the Istanbul Atatürk Airport, I had enough time on my hands before boarding my final flight to try some local food from a restaurant in the terminal. I decided to check out Tadinda Anadolu, which translates to English as “In the Taste of Anatolia.” Out of many different styles of cuisine from the various regions of Turkey,

The restaurant.

The restaurant.

Yum...

Yum…

I chose a classic dish called çöp şiş. It’s juicy lamb marinated in garlic, tomato, oregano, black pepper, and olive oil, which is a staple in many Turkish dishes. The lamb bits are then arranged on thin bamboo skewers and grilled. It was soooo good after all that airplane food, which, let’s be honest, doesn’t taste very good and comes in much too tiny portions. 😉

To be continued…

This post was yet another “gourmet” post about the cuisine I had while travelling, but then again, you can’t fully understand a country’s culture without trying their food. And don’t worry, the next Travel Snippets are much more exciting, so stay tuned! 😛 Happy August by the way!
