Istanbul’s still got it

Istanbul maybe gentrifying fast – after Galata and Karakoy, even conservative Balat is getting hip – but the city hasn’t lost any of its grit or zing.

Favourite finds on this trip: the dried aubergine dumplings at Yeni Lokanta and pickled okra and ginger and coriander martini at Gaspar (which doesn’t have anything so vulgar as a website).
