Sinan or as many in Turkey know him, Tatdedektifi (The Taste Detective) is someone you want to have in your wing when you navigate Istanbul’s streets looking for good food.
He is the one who knows what hides behind every door and in most cases has the key to it.
On top of all this, Sinan is a great cook and a world-class expert on hamburgers.
