Locals Share Their Istanbul Experiences – Dumrul Alcici

Every month we ask an Istanbul local the same ten questions. This way you can hear firsthand what they love and hate about the city, and learn about the best places to wine, dine and shop in town. Today Dumrul Alcici, aged between 36-45 and active as a manager, shares his Istanbul secrets.
I live in Etiler, in the Beşiktaş district. Although it is a residential area located in the city center it is still very quiet.
I prefer nice spring weather over the summer heat. It starts with a nice brunch by the Bosphorus . After that some (window) shopping, followed by quality entertainment at night.
I’m a bit traditional here I guess. I would take them to the historical sites in Sultanahmet.
I prefer shopping malls and department stores. Very little secrets to share while shopping there.
In my opinion the Grand Bazaar is the best spot to find suitable souvenirs. There is such a huge variety that everybody should be able to find something they like.
I like Vogue  (see opening picture) a lot. It has a nice view, and they serve even better food.
Turkish cuisine is famous for its huge variety of kebabs. But if there is one type people should really try, then it’s Iskender Kebab. Just make sure you order it in a ‘Bursa’ restaurant to get the authentic flavor and taste.
I love sipping on a mojito at Anjelique, a nightclub located in Ortaköy .
I love chilling out at Nuteras . They have an excellent restaurant and bar with a magnificent view.
I love the diversity of people and food. Just like all other inhabitants of Istanbul, I hate the traffic.
