Pastane Poğaçasi

Even though I like a piece of cake and even a slice of baklava for breakfast once in a while I strongly favor savory food over sweet for breakfast. Nowadays I tend to skip breakfast at home and get a bite at my office desk because of the early starting office hours. I get a croissant, make porridge in the office or bring a toast with me to eat with cheese & tomato salad. Back in the day when I used to live in Istanbul it was the same, mostly due to hours spend in the morning traffic jam, but I used to get a poğaça from “pastane” and have it with Turkish tea in the office. Pastane is the little bakery shops or Pâtisseries that was there before Starbucks or the third wave coffee shops for love
