A Hole-In-The-Wall in Izmir

A Hole-In-The-Wall in Izmir

In Britain, a hole in the wall is slang for an Automated Teller Machine (ATM). Here in the United States, it means "a small and often unpretentious out-of-the-way place, usually a restaurant". Some of the best places to eat are unassuming hole-in-the-wall restaurants. And, there are many in Turkey. But as a tourist, you never really know good hole-in-the-wall places unless a native with culinary sophistication recommends it.

When it comes to culinary experience, there is no real common basis, measure, or standard of comparison. It would be fair to say that dining culture is incommensurable. And yet, those who appreciate good cuisine generally compliment the same foods. Why is that? Maybe there actually is a "common basis" to the dining experience that we can never quite put into words. And, I have to say, I don't really care about the opinions of food critics. Amateur food critics on the Internet are not any better; If you don't know where or what to eat, you are generally better of asking a local taxicab driver.
