Istanbul is heaven for fish lovers..Some fishes are only found in Bosphorus like the Blue fish and they taste great..
Istinye Fish market is one of the best alternatives when you want to buy some fish for the house..
If you are a tourist with an average luck and need to eat outside, try balik-ekmek (fish-bread) boats in Istinye and Yenikoy..
You can have a delicious fish for 2 dollars..
Turkish coffee. No sugar. Enjoyable.
Don't dare to leave the country before having tried this small cup of aromathic beverage. What?!!!
You do not drink coffee? Ok they have turkish
orange Fanta as well... Go ahead!!!
I am just forget how much did I pay for a cup of coffee. It is not on my records. I was not surprised by the price...It means is a reasonable price for the gem.
In the late afternoon and in the evening there are many fishermen boats, along the piers in central Istanbul, who cook and sell fresh fish.
Sandwiches with grilled or fried sardines are the most popular with locals, as well as mussels stuffed with rice and spices.
There a few local brands of beer in Turkey. Efes and Venus were the most popular ones when I visited.
They are good and available almost everywhere, though not so cheap when compared to other soft drinks.
A great entertaintment here in Turkey is to eat pumpkin seeds,stops you smoking anyway,you can get some from many shops which sells nuts and sweets.
Local beer called efes is almost like water a tasteless.
The beer you see on the picture is even more tasteless !
For good alcoholic drinks you are in the wrong country.
the Turkish people love their breads and there are many bakeries that serve many varieties mostly of the sweet kind. This one is located in Ortakoy.
Breakfast traditionally consists of bread, cheese, fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and olives. Be sure and try the wonderful cherry juice, too.
The Bounty of Turkey. Fruits nuts and Raki are part of every meal. Turks like to feed each other. Odd at first, but very roamntic!
