Great times this past weekend in Izmir Turkey and this might have just made it into my top 5 places to visit. Izmir is definitely a beautiful place, with great people and such an "old" neighborhood vibe the mom and pop restaurants lining the streets, corners stores everywhere to buy your snacks and newspapers. And of course the food was awesome and some of the freshest, hand made, well prepared that I've ever had. They really take pride in how they serve their dishes, even the dough for the pita bread is flattened and rolled right there. All and all it was a great experience and definitely look forward to a return visit soon.
