  • This is an historic venue, İstanbul in one of the places to go. Famous for its special neat great. Vinegar and cider for sale. Grab your desired amount of grizzly bear can move home in plastic jars, you can get enough bozaya your home so to speak. You can look through the internet sites to its product range. In recent years they've started a drive-through, places to sit inside in the evening, if you can find a place to park the car in the vicinity of the venue, but it's definitely worth taken on cruelty.

  • Vefa is an Istanbul landmark. Boza isn't for everyone, but the shop is worth a visit regardless! If you do want to have some boza don't forget to buy some warm leblebi from the shop across the street to go with it. :)
  • I'm not certain if the ice cream or the atmosphere is better. Truly, a great place to step back in time, relax and enjoy yourself. Located in a traditional neighborhood with many small shops and restaurants. I highly recommend visiting this lovely establishment.
  • Love boza! Dont forget to grab some leblebi))
  • Very authentic place. Local drink called "Boza" served here. It goes very well with "Leblebi" (roasted chickpea) which is sold right accross the place. This little soar and sweet drink is populer and consumed by Turkish people in ages. This is must go place and must taste place if you are first comer to Istanbul.
  • Historical place to drink "boza". Recommend for every travellers.
