Man orders vegetarian meal on #plane receives raw #vegetables


Any vegetarian knows how difficult it can be to find a good place to eat. This can get especially tough for vegetarians when travelling.
When the time came, and the stewardess came by asking for what he wanted to eat, he chose the vegetarian option, the “Vegetarian Oriental” which was advertised as being “Prepared in Chinese Style.” When he received his meal however, he was surprised to find a small container of raw vegetables, including organic Chinese celery, which was part of the “Chinese Style.”

Syrian migrants living in Istanbul have brought their rich food culture to the city, with many of them opening restaurants across the city over the past few years.

One Mecca for this burgeoning scene is Akşemsettin Street in the Fatih district of Istanbul, where a number of restaurants offer a “fusion” of Syrian and Turkish tastes.

Syrian restaurants and shops were initially centered around the Aksaray neighborhood and its Vatan Street, where many migrants are from Aleppo. Akşemsettin Street has over the past year begun to host many migrants from Damascus, who have opted to open restaurants.
