Laleli | Istanbul, Turkey
Nominated by Omeros Demetriou
I recently traveled to Istanbul where I visited a store called ‘Laleli’ which is dedicated entirely to olive oil and carries a comprehensive inventory of Turkey’s best. From local extra virgins to olive oil soaps, EVOOs for massage, hair re-growth and even an EVOO spray for sore throats, they sell everything. The store is situated in an area of Istanbul called ‘Bebek’ which is a seaside strip where the rich and famous of Istanbul park their multi-million euro yachts. Laleli was one of the highlights of my trip there.
