Soydan Turşucusu – Best Pickles

When I was a child, I remember my mother making our own pickles. A pickle jar was no different than a candy jar for me, sneaking pickles from jar is a good old memory. Although mom’s pickles are unique, this tiny shop at Beşiktaş market sells the best pickles in town.

They offer more than 30 different kinds of pickles from mango to cabbage where my favorites are tomato, cucumber, cabbage and pepper combined with hot pickles juice. They use a plastic transparent bag to pack it in, sealed with a heat sealer to ensure you can bring it home safely, which is very practical.

Besides pickles they also serve glasses of pickle juice with or without pickles to be consumed quickly on foot as this tiny shop is all packed with pickle jars. They also serve tomato paste, green pepper sauce, grape leaves to be stuffed (well-known Turkish speciality) and turnip juice. Do not miss it if you’re a pickle fan.
