The definitive guide to eating locally and authentically in several of the world’s greatest food cities, including Istanbul, Athens and Barcelona – with more to come!
The definitive guide to eating locally and authentically in several of the world’s greatest food cities, including Istanbul, Athens and Barcelona – with more to come! Each city volume within the application is purchased separately for $3.99 with free updates to the database forever. Beyond the kebab, souvlaki or tapas – and what you will find listed in most guidebooks for these cities – lies a wide range of unique regional cuisines and restaurants with hints of cooking from all around. Most of these spots, though, are found far off the eaten track.
Culinary Backstreets® and the creators of the Istanbul volume of the app, Istanbul Eats®, bring together savvy bloggers and writers in some of the planet’s most exciting food capitals in order to introduce you to the best undiscovered local eateries you might not always find on your own. We’re talking about serious food for serious eaters, hold the frills. The purpose of Culinary Backstreets® and Istanbul Eats® is twofold. Yes, we want to get you to some good places to eat. But we also want to make sure that some of these spots and the artisans making food there – unsung heroes who are sometimes forgotten or taken for granted at home – find a new audience and get the recognition and support they deserve. They are holding back the tide of globalized sameness, which is not easy work – even if it’s done unknowingly. But Culinary Backstreets® and Istanbul Eats® believe that every meal counts and, with the help of our readers, they will add up.
