Snack on classic candy at Altan Şekerleme
Shopping Chocolate and sweets Fatih Altan Şekerleme
What is it? Opened in 1865, this classic candy shop is a blast from the past and a relic in a city that is changing by the minute.
Why go? This shop has been in the same family’s hands since the very beginning and features a variety of age-old sweets that are hard to come by these days in Istanbul. While there are lots of lousy variations of Turkish delight to be found in Istanbul, Altan Şekerleme makes the real deal.
Don’t miss: If Turkish delight isn’t your thing, then try their other speciality akide şekeri, a homemade rock candy.
