Guests traveling to Istanbul can look forward to a sweet and signature experience with the world’s first Baklava Butler at Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul.
Perfectly curated for the foodie-obsessed and exclusivity-seeker, the Baklava Butler service is available for in-house guests only in the Lobby Lounge and at the IST TOO restaurant.
Dressed in a traditional and stylish Turkish outfit, the Baklava Butler presents the historic sweet dish dating back to the Ottoman Empire. A veritable treat for the palate, eyes and camera lens, the Baklava Butler offers a one-of-its-kind experience for guests’ travel memories, culinary bucket list and Instagram feeds.
Upon arrival at the retreat on the Bosphorus Strait, guests receive an ornate key to redeem the exclusive service. When presenting the key to a hotel staffer either in the Lobby Lounge or the IST TOO restaurant, the Baklava Butler will serve a portion of the classic baklava, rich in flavour and filled with Antep pistachio. The tasting is served with Maraş ice-cream,a traditional Turkish ice-cream made of clotted cream, prepared and cut from a vertical skewer. The Maraş Turkish ice-cream can be served either on the side or inside the baklava like a sandwich.
The baklava served at Shangri-La Bosphorus is baked to order from a specialty shop in Gaziantep, known as the birthplace of baklava and Turkey’s Pistachio Capital. Gaziantep baklava bakers use a simple blend of honey, phyllo pastry, butter and crushed pistachio to make Turkey’s famous dessert.
