When the summer arrives, it is very hard to find locals in the city during the weekends. Everyone gets away to some place. Be it the islands in the Marmara Sea, Kilyos Beach by the Black Sea, Bodrum down at the south or Çeşme next to the Agean. The first of your coastal guides is going to cover the gist of Çeşme.
There are basically .. main words you need to learn:
-Kumru (special bread of İzmir, also a sandwich)
-Surf: This is what many people do during daytime.
-Gevret: How the folks of İzmir refer to Turkish bagels
-Boyoz: A pretty oily, yet delicious type of pastry.
-Fish: You have to eat some here...
-Langusta: The best of its kind is in Küçükçiftlikköy
-Keten: Means cotton, but again the best of its kind are sold all around.
With your guide you are more than ready to go...
Day 3 - Istanbul
As Çeşme is made up of smaller towns, it is not too easy to focus all restaurants in all regions. Therefore since we have been focusing on Alaçatı most of this time, the following two are restaurants in Alaçatı and one with branches around İzmir. Sardunaki has branches. It is indeed a hotel in Alaçatı and the hotel has a beautiful restaurant, but Sardunaki also has another beautiful place in İzmir. El Beso has branches in Istanbul and Alaçatı. Very good tapas... Imren is no restaurant, but a pasty house. A place for you to buy a bag of cookies and delights before hitting the road, a cup of ice cream in the afternoon, bagers and kumru bread (a speciality of IZmir) for breakfasts. Then there is Dalyanköy... The haven of fish... There is an abundancy of fish restaurants here; and, there is indeed nothing comparable to having fish and a glass of raki at sunset for the locals at one of these restaurants.
