Dubai Souqs (UAE). 'Noisy, chaotic and colourful, Dubai’s souqs are an enticing reminder that you are, indeed, in a foreign country – something you might forget when you’re poolside at your five-star hotel. The small Spice Souq is a heady introduction to Middle Eastern exotic herbs and spices, while Bur Dubai’s Textile Souq is another assault on the senses with its vividly patterned fabrics.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/united-arab-emirates/dubai/shopping/market/bur-dubai-souq
Boncuk Meyhane is located at the famous and popular Nevizade Sokak, which is just off the Istiklal Caddesi. Nevizade Sokak is one of the best places in the world for a boisterous evening meal and people-watching. Boncuk is a great choice on this street. Stick to the fish and seafood here; it's outstanding, whereas other menu items were fairly ordinary.
