Pastane Shops are all through Turkey with as you know all regions having different specialities. This is a typical view of a local neighbourhood Pastry shop. They usually have mainly savory pastries as well as selling cakes and biscuits(cookies) This will be the first of a few posts about Pastanes and Tatlici as I want to show you all the various things they sell.
|Wonder who that is?|
The next thing I want to introduce are sweet or desert shops. These are everywhere as well but mainly in the eastern areas(I think they like sweeter things). You pay for your desert and just eat it in front of the shop/stall, a real street food. Some sell just the basics but others go for a few different things like this one in the main area in Antep.
|Don't they look great.|
What is your favourite Turkish pastry or desert?
