Turkish delight!

One of my favourite shops in Marjanishvili Street is a Turkish cake shop. It has the most amazingly delicious cakes and pastries. Unfortunately, I can only take the tall person’s word for this as I am not allowed to eat them because they are made with lots of syrup and sugar. He said that the cakes literally melt in your mouth!

I like to sit outside the shop and gaze longingly at the beautiful cakes and……….drool!

You can see from the photo that the shop is very popular with girls who have a sweet tooth. Watch your figures young ladies!

The cake shop on Marjanishvili Street is part of the district of Didube-Chugureti, an area of Tbilisi that has a sizable Turkish community. Because of this, there are lots of Turkish shops and cafes and restaurants. I asked the tall person why there are so many and he told me that part of Georgia borders with Turkey so it is no surprise that people from Turkey have settled here. Oh, I thought they came here to be near the cake shop!

  1. Jen had never heard of Turkish Delight until she read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. She has tried some bought online one holiday but never had in person. Is it really good enough to lure a young boy into the grasp of the White Witch?
