It invites you into the intricacies of the local spice shop and the contradictions of bra shopping. Morrow is always asking questions. Another one of the best and least expensive options for food in Istanbul are the many mom and pop cafeteria style restaurants.
Not many of them can be found online and I had difficulty locating even a simple address as some are tucked away in little corners, seating only 10 people or so. Upon entering these little shops will display different dishes they have prepared behind the counter. Some of my favorites included lentils with rice, roasted cauliflower, meatballs and seasoned garbanzo beans. Select whatever looks best and they will make a small dish of each.
There are some larger chains in the Taksim area as well that looked good but they are slightly more expensive. A nice alternative to noise and chaos of Istanbul can be found in the islands just off the coast of the city. Ferries leave regularly and are inexpensive. For those who love fresh fish, there are a number of expensive restaurants all along the harbor.
For those looking for something more affordable, Tasfirin is just a short walk away. Serving up some of the best pide in Istanbul, they may mention their appearance in a New York Times article. The veggie option with peppers and cheese was delicious, as was the option with sausage. We also ordered a side of peppers that packed quite a kick and complemented both pide perfectly.
