So following up on yesterday’s post, I promised I would share my second dinner in Istanbul, although it was more like an actual experience at 360 Suada Istanbul.
The only thing I want to say is that I wish that I had gone here for an early dinner and stayed out clubbing on Saturday night, instead I chose to go for a later dinner on Sunday night as that was my last night in Istanbul. This was a great way to end my trip to the city on two continents however; I wish I had been able to take better pictures in the sunlight to do the place the justice it deserves.
360 Suada is an award-winning club located on the Galatasaray Island in Bosphorus with the most amazing 360 views of both the Asian and European sides of Istanbul. The restaurant is very vibrant and atmospheric and I’m so grateful that I was able to visit and eat here.
If you read Part 2 of 48hrs in Istanbul, then you know that I initially went for drinks to 360 Beyoglu where I met the restaurant manager Cenk who kindly invited me to dinner at 360 Suada and boy am I glad that I went.
We drank wine and ate food that was recommended by their top waiters, they tend to serve International cuisine with a Turkish twist.
For starters we had a bunch of hot and cold appetizers with roast baby artichoke with dill stalks and anise olive oil; crisp salt and pepper calamari with piquant sweet pepper sambal and shellfish spring rolls with peanut sweat and sour sauce. It was so tasty and delicious and I really enjoyed the mix of different worldly flavours.
For the mains you can already probably guess that we went for a fillet of steak with mushrooms and asparagus being the steak lover that I am.
It really was a great place to end my visit to Istanbul and Cenk was great company. I definitely recommend you hit 360 Suada on a Saturday night for a lively night out on the town with some magnificent views of the Bosphorus bridge.
This is my last post from my Istanbul trip and I really hope that you enjoyed reading them. I have a couple more trips planned and I’m really excited to share them with you guys.
Until then, lots of love!
