Pudding Shop, Divan Yolu, Sultanahmet, Istanbul



The "World Famous Pudding Shop," or Lale Restaurant, has an interesting history. This was the place where hippies would meet before venturing off to places west such as India and Iran. Returning travelers would sell their vehicles to the next group making the trip, and would leave messages for their friends on the message board inside.

It was also the place where Billy Hayes, portrayed in the movie "Midnight Express" bought the hashish for which he was arrested, of course the restaurant is an entirely different place than it was in the 1960s and 1970s.
