Nargilehs ( also known as hookahs) and the billowy smoke they produce have been an integral part of Istanbul’s coffeehouses for centuries.

Although once associated more with older men who would spend their days smoking,sipping Turkish coffee and playing backgammon, the nargileh is having a renewed popularity with younger Istanbulites.

They used to be smoked using strong tobacco but today they are more often served with a variety of flavored tobaccos, such as apple or strawberry.

Because the smoke is filtered through water, it’s cool and smooth,though it can make you light headed if you are not used to it.
