How about starting the day off with a smile by tucking into Izmir's famous Boyoz pastry? It's particularly yummy with boiled eggs. The chewy "gevrek" pretzels are delicious cut open and spread in the middle with Nutella® and, as is customary in this city, a great variety of local olives and Izmir goat cheeses are presented beautifully on the morning table. The favourite breakfast drink is, of course, a glass of strongly-brewed tea. Afiyet olsun!
