  Cicek Pasaji
by Erkmen

Favorite thing: Flower passaege or as local calls "Cicek pasaji" is one of the most important spots in Istanbul..

The old "Cite de pera" is located in the middle of Istiklal street.. Although it is called as the Flower passage, there is no flower inside but restaurants..

When there is a reunion of Classes, When there is a reunion of Friends, when we are looking for a place to meet with our friends, "Cicek Pasaji" is the first address that we call..

Inside the passage there are around 7-8 restaurants, all have tables and chairs laid on the passage and waiting for their customers. At nights its very authentic.. With an old lady singing a song, with nice mezze plates and Turkish Raki...
