Eat your way around Turkey -- without ever leaving İstanbul

Over the last 20 years İstanbul has grown enormously. A city that had at the time of the Ottoman conquest in 1453 a population of around 60,000 is now bursting at the seams under the strain of perhaps 16 million residents, with its furthest reaches now sprawling almost all the way to Tekirdağ on the European side and Kocaeli (İzmit) on the Anatolian side.

Re: Eat your way around Turkey -- without ever leaving İstanbul

I lived in Istanbul, in different districts, for 10 years. I also lived in various cities in Turkey. I can easily say there is no restaurant in Istanbul where you can eat traditional meals. There is only one restaurant, historical Konyali restaurant, who have two branches, one in Topkapi palace and one in Sirkeci/Eminonu where you can find some traditional meals. Other than that, all restaurants in Istanbul are kebab restaurants and they aren't even 10% of various kebabs in Turkey. Istanbul is so limited in menu, especially when it comes to traditional meals.
