TGIF! Treat yourself to an award winning international film and lunch at an award winning traditional restaurant. This day will be a get away that's on the metro and ferry boat lines, in the ecclectic and bustiling area of Kadıköy. On Bahariye Caddesi there is a gem of architectural design that is Kadikoy Sinemasi. It first openned its doors as a theatre in 1964. This establishment has been in our member, Funda Kocadağ's family for over 40 years and functions now mainly as a movie theatre but also debuts some theatrical, musical, and dance productions as well.
Let's enjoy a film festival winner together at Kadikoy Sinemasi and discuss it over the delectable delights on offer at Çiya. Çiya makes Gaziantep style food. It has the common and not so common dishes like Ayvalı Tarakli on display that you can choose from in addition to kebabs, döner, and a fantastic salad bar. Its on Tripadvisor and all the tourists make it a point to make a pit stop here after roaming the maze that is Moda and Bahariye. I highly recommend it as one of my all time favorites so far in Turkey.
So come for a film among friends and take a 5 minute stroll to lunch. Its going to be a wonderful start to your weekend.
