We ate supperdupper delicious Mezzes...the one with EtsyFriends writing is a very typical Armenian Mezze called TOPIK...Topik is an Armenian delicacy which has almost completely disappeared from kitchens..The casing is made of potatoes and garbanzo beans, the filling is to die for: slow roasted onions, tahini, black currants, allspice and pine nuts. The reastaurant where we were is one of the very few last places who offer this specialty. Nowadays it is only (and even then rarely, as it is very cumbersome to prepare) found in the private kitchens of the Armenian minority in Istanbul, especially around New Year..

 Happy to know you all...and hope to seeing you again and again:-)
