Van Kahvaltı Evi

by szaza
Van Kahvaltı Evi in Cihangir has got to be the tastiest breakfast in town, with a great team of waiters who fly through the packed room balancing trays of tea glasses and burning hot plates of menemen. I swear I could live off of bal kaymak— a heavenly pairing of honey and a thick, clotted cream— and the cevizli çemen, which I assume has something to do with walnuts and fenugreek (as that's what the name translates to). It's a delightfully tangy paste that I thoroughly enjoy spreading on bread with a bit of egg. At the end of the feast, we decided to sketch our waiters in action, over a çay.

After some initial scouting by the waiters, our books were snatched away to be shown around with big grins.
We were kindly offered some Turkish coffee, and some more smiles.
