Istanbul Street Food

Ansel Mullins of Istanbul Eats leads a street food walking tour through the streets of his city.

The Bosphorus from Beylerbeyi, Istanbul is devoted to chronicling the culinary backstreets of Istanbul. It recently published a book and leads culinary walks that include the street food favorites in this slideshow.

If New York is the city that never sleeps, Istanbul is the city that always eats. There is an ironclad cultural bond between Istanbul's streets and its food. From the sweet to the savory, from morning to night, traditional snacks are seen, smelled, heard and, of course, tasted on nearly every corner. And its food creates memories that are often just as vivid as those of visits to the historic monuments that define its cityscape. Come with me as I take you on a walking tour of some iconic street foods.
