"The Re-discovered Istanbul Through its Terraces" and News From the Istanbul's "Primary one”: “Armada Terrace”!

Istanbul has been re-discovering by the Americans particularly through its "terraces" according to Peter Frank, the editor in chief of the well-known travel site "Concierge.Com" [1], who explained this fact in an interview published in “Chicago Tribune” in April 2007. The world tourism media as well as Turkish press widely reflected the said interview [2]. Frank said “Istanbul is becoming Europe's nightlife capital, with amazing clubs overlooking the Bosporus and all these great little restaurants on rooftops."

The Armada Terrace, one of the primary terraces of Istanbul and an indispensable place to view the whole Istanbul silhouette within a same angle not only for the American guests but also for Istanbul lovers, has just re-arranged itself for the 2007 summer...

One of the novelties of the Armada Terrace is the re-arranged and enlarged "Bar" section. Towards the bower in the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque direction, some wicker armchairs with white pillows and white tables were added. Together with the renewed voice system, the Armada Terrace aimed to present its guests a pleasant environment during they enjoy their sundowner. A "Cilingir Tray" (cold starters) might accompany if they wish...

On the other hand the "Istanbul Cuisine Sampling Menu" that was added into the amusing dinners at the Terrace offers a "bunch of taste" to the guests. This menu consists of 8 sorts of "meze" that is served in traditional Armada "Chef's Traditional Cold Starters Tray" and the various warm dishes those are served in "Sultan's Taste" including Lamb Loin, Lamp Chops, Lamb Shish, Kebab, “Filibe” meatballs, Veal with Aubergine Puree, Mixed Salad, Mixed Turkish Desserts, Coffee with Turkish Delight and home made Liqueur...
