Sizzling for new cuisine
The steakhouse culture is gaining popularity in Turkey. The Nusr-Et Steakhouse is one of the leading restaurants of its kind receiving high acclaim for its quality, service and ambiance. Other establishments in this category of foods have also attracted a lot of attention recently.

“Garrafón” is the Spanish word used to describe bad quality alcohol. It’s also one of the most used words on social media networks on weekend mornings, a time where a lot of people complain about the quality of their drinks from the night before.
A consumer tired of suffering from bad hangovers created a collaborative website called the “Guía Garrafón”. It aims to report bars that serve bad alcohol but also recognises bars where consumers can find good quality alcohol.
Within a week of the site’s launch, it garnered thousands of consumer reports and more than 11,000 fans on Facebook.
