  • Until then, your drink on Fidelity is not corrupt, even here in the bottle that says when you drink. Take a cup of break your striped on the counter as well as full of empty drinks break, that you enjoy being beautiful at that moment you know and probably never will share with people we can't see. I don't, but if you want to put this in the shop front of chickpea Boza logistics. From there, you will get leblebiye on this business nobody does not make a sound. Remember, at least on his own break snacks. Clean, friendly, traditional, classic, ultra tasty ...

  • Vefa Boza manufacturer, not much actually going to write for because it's very, very nice. Go to break a glass of bozacıda, or even the date the post office to take your break from the hot chickpeas. If you find a place oturabilrsiniz, place or cardboard Cup also featured boza. Istanbul is the icon shops, well worth a visit.

  • 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.
