Summer Vacation: A Day in Tekirdag
Our summer vacation started at my grandmas place in Tekirdag which is about 190 km far from İstanbul. This year we managed to gather all family at her house and spend our days eating delicious "trakya" food on the occasion of ramadan. On sunday the three days of festive food, presents and hand-kissing started, finishing the 29 days of fasting. After all these years I finally spend the chrismas of islam in my home country.
The pictures were taken in "yengenin yeri" - a traditional restaurant for tekirdag cuisine.
Its menue is super short as they only specialize in köfte making. You can order (and definitly should) mercimek corbasi, beyaz pilav, köfte, salata and the dessert helva.
After our stay at yengenin yeri we took a cake home to celebrate grandma's past 71st Birthday....
Now we're on our ways to İstanbul - the greatest city of all times. Have a nice summer & gecmiş bayramınız kutlu olsun!!!
