Bomonti Charquterie – Local shop

A good breakfast means something for Turkish people. It is kind of a social event where families and friends get together, especially on weekends.

I bumped into this place one Saturday morning; all I wanted was to have snacks with good Turkish tea because I was in a rush.

But as i walked in to this place, I was really surprised by what they had inside because it looked like a small shop on the street.

I ordered a quick breakfast plate for myself but didn’t know they were gonna put on the table 5 different cheeses, salad, eggs and some stuff that I’d never heard of before.

They mostly have traditional stuff that comes from Antakya which is in south Turkey. There are lots of different kind of cheese, homemade jams, organic healthy foods… They also sell cold-press olive oils, wines, dried aubergines hanging on the walls, home food, etc… I really didn’t expect to have that much delicious food in there.

I spoke to the owner and I was quite pleased to hear that he also cares about selling clean food.

I would really recommend people visit this place and have breakfast or lunch there – even maybe buy some traditional stuff to take them home as presents.

Now, it’s time for me to enjoy my chestnut jam 🙂
