I had never
been to Alaçatı (roughly pronounced AL-a-chat-uh) before, but heard it was a nice little town, so we went in to
check it out and have dinner one night. Most of the downtown has been restored,
a rare sight in Turkey. There are quite a few chain stores, but also smaller
boutiques, although we didn’t do much shopping.
I loved this little corner. And I'm pretty sure those pillows are from IKEA.
We ate at Rasim Usta at the end
of the first main street. The food was good and not too pricey, which I was
worried about since Alaçatı has a reputation for being a bit hoity toity, and
we were there on one of the biggest travel days of the year with it being the
last day of Ramadan.

Good food, good prices, great service
Alaçatı is famous for its windmills, now restored and
proudly overlooking a booming little town.
