A full deck of 'Istanbul Secrets'

The "secret" to a good night out in Istanbul? Just pick a card, any card...

The latest guide to the city's eating and drinking scene is a pocket-sized deck of 52 cards, each featuring one of Istanbul's best restaurants, cafes, or bars.

Released this week along with an app version, "Istanbul Secrets" was produced by the Melbourne, Australia-based travel company Deck of Secrets, which enlisted Istanbul experts Serra Tükel of Guruology, Simon Johnson of THAT Magazine, and Başak Miller of NEW-IST, along with myself, to write up some of our favorite haunts.

Afiyet olsun.
