Tip from tour guide



During your exploration, don't forget to try Ottoman Mesir Paste, a paste infused with 41 spices and herbs that are believed to have medicinal properties. It was used for the first time by the famous physician of the period, Merkez Efendi, to treat the wife of Yavuz Sultan Selim, Ayşe Hafsa Sultan, when she fell ill. Later, this recipe was made public and sold by local vendors. It's a mixture of cinnamon, black pepper, allspice, clove, black cumin, mustard seed, and more. Other spices and herbs include elixir, galanga, pine gum, and mirsapi.
