LOCAL: Neighbors are gathered around the dining table at Giritli, a Cankurtaran gem. The present company includes regulars clinking rakı glasses. In front of us sits, Mother Ayşe, the creator of the space we are in. She is telling the story in her own words.
NEIGHBORHOOD BY NEIGHBORHOOD: This is Cankurtaran. One of the 57 neighborhoods of the Fatih district. The furthest point of the Historical Peninsula. The place where you return home with instrumentalists accompanying you.
STOP BY: Muj Design. Where? Just next door to Armada Hotel at the back alley from the seaside. The conversation is about whether we belong or once upon a time belonged to the neighborhood.
HAUNT: Armada. Where? In between Giritli and Muj Design. The question in mind is how to define the periphery of Cankurtaran.
ROUTE: Food and drink route in the Historical Peninsula. Walking from Zahire Street, a little bit further you come across İskender Boğazı. If you follow the pastırma smell, it will guide you to Hasırcılar Avenue.
