Lunch @ Million Cafe & Restaurant, Istanbul

Travel and Teach

While in Istanbul with Topdeck I had lunch at Million Restaurant and Cafe which is located walking distance from the Sultanahmet district on the older European side of the city. I went with two of the girls who were also doing the tour with me.

Travel and Teach

I was introduced to Cantina when I was in Prague during October mid-term break last year. I had forgotten about the experience until in Budapest when I was talking to the Irish lads I was sharing a dorm room with. They were heading off to Prague when I was heading back to London and I remembered the best Mexican meal I had ever had and managed to locate it for them while realising along the way that it had not made it onto the blog.

I went to Prague with a now ex-boyfriend last October, whom had spent many summers in the city and knew some of the best places to eat.
