Food & streets of Istanbul:
Went to this food street across Galata bridge, by the river. From the looks of it, it is a wet market at daytime, and converted to a food street at night.
Finally had a taste of shisha again. Was so thrilled when WL agreed to smoke this with me. Heehaw!
Grilled fish kebab drizzled with lemon. Delicious & one of the cheapest foods around! Fish sold here is so fresh. You can see masses of people just sitting on stools and makeshift tables devouring fish kebabs by the river.
Pigeons aplenty. How repulsive, ugh.
Love pushcart food, for its authenticity and price! 😉
It is little wonder why everyone is enamoured with this city that overspills with vibrance, history and life. Not only do you see people at every turn, you see an outrageous number of pigeons too!
Equip yourself with these know-hows before visiting Istanbul in Girl Astray’s Istanbul guide.
I’ve found this really cool video by commenter Nemanja that shows you what goes on in Istanbul in just 3 minutes!
Are there any other places I might have missed? Comment below!
