Chestnut Stalls

You start to smell burning coal while you stroll Istanbul these days.

The fumes are like messengers of good news.

Good news of approaching winter and the delicious winter tastes, and in this case it is the chestnuts grilling slowly on the small-tiny bbq’s of street sellers.

Just go out, chit-chat with the chestnut seller, convince him to serve you the freshly cooked and the hottest ones and enjoy! But, do not eat a lot on an empty tummy, you will regret it, believe me…
