Sweet & Sour Goodness @white mojo

I’m a foodie, Love my food. Take my food very seriously. Packed with a punch and intricacy of texture and play of flavour. Subtle yet bold. That’s how I like my food. Going by the Melbourne tradition of being a serious brunch person on weekends. I took it upon myself to take a trip into the city on a Sunday.

As my plane descended onto Istanbul, I was nervous, excited a mixed bag of emotions. Just as I had expected from the beautiful images captured by my favourite chef Anthony Bourdain. From the glorious food to the majestic Sophia Hagia, hustle and bustle of Istiklal street. Each morning, I would wake up with a kingsize appetite with all the walking and playing tourist during the day.
