In the market you will see many stalls offering large, fresh mussels, filled with rice and seasoned with a delicate baharat spice. If you are a seafood lover, try it.
Here you can also eat local delicacies such as the bottarga, which contains delicious cooked fish eggs.
Also try the flagship of the smoked fish from the Bosphorus - the lacarde, which is a white fish. It is a very fleshy, boneless fish, served salted or smoked with salt. It is usually served with green or purple onions and sometimes with a bit of sour cream. It is delicious and wonderful!
Live spoiled oysters will destroy the trip. Think twice before trying the oysters with lemon flakes on the street!
Avoid being tempted by traders who push you into their business. The good and the quality places do not need to push you inside.
