Lokum Istanbul

Kuruçeşme Caddesi 19, Kuruçeşme, Istanbul

Dead easy to drop into on the road from Ortaköy to Bebek, with easy parking in front of the shop.

This lovely store is not your average sweet shop. It isn’t even your average Turkish delight shop, even though it sells a huge selection of one of Turkey’s most loved delicacies lokum (Turkish delight), as well as the boiled sweets known as ‘akide candy’. The lokum is just the right mix of soft and chewy and has the perfect amount of rose water, not to mention a thousand other exotic fragrances. Fragrances themselves, candles and books are also available, and everything, even the tiniest offering, comes wrapped as if for Louis XIV.

There is also a store in London at 95 Walton Street, SW3 2HP (+44 207 225 0704).
