... We got a recommendation from our hostel man for some real local Turkish food (there are plenty of average Turkish places on the main streets, you need to head down the back streets to find the real deal!) and headed there for a real kebab experience.

I was expecting this same type of banter when I returned, however, to my surprise a much younger man was running the shop and he spoke excellent English.
