One of the many amazing meals we had in Istanbul was at Giritli. http://www.giritlirestoran.com/ It’s a seafood restaurant with a prix fix menu. We had no idea what we were in for when we went, but what an amazing surprise.
We sat down and were soon greeted by plates and plates of mezze. I think about 20 in all! Of course this was after we took a food tour that afternoon, so bad planning on our part right? Oh well.
We tucked in and had fish, shrimp, more fish, dips, bread and just amazing things. As if that was not enough, there were still three more courses to go. A grilled octopus, some calamari, grilled fish fillets and desert. All in all, an amazing feast, and unexpected treat and a true delight.
