A bit pricey stuff around. Good cafes and restaurants, unfortunately, hard to find. Crowded all the time. Mercan restaurant is no good anymore.

This short bazaar street offers a wonderful selection of fish and eateries! You can feast your eyes and stomach quickly and for a nice price. Some are pushy, but just follow the locals for a good meal.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
