Nothing pulls you into a new country or culture quite like the aroma of an unfamiliar dish and the sensation of trying it for the first time. From coffee/tea shops to local delicacies to street-market vendors; food is often the fastest (and most delicious) way to immerse oneself into a new place. Take us on a culinary adventure for this week’s #PPFoodLove Instagram challenge!

Nothing matches these sesame bagels (‘simit’ as we call them) paired with our world-famous red Turkish tea in a tulip-shaped glass. In a city so rich with stories, the vendor’s eyes seemed to say, “I’ve seen it all.” / @passionpassport #PPFoodLove
