Scarf down a balık ekmek on the go at Eminönü

Restaurants Street food Fatih Eminönü Balık Ekmek

What is it? Balık ekmek (fish sandwich) is one of Istanbul’s most iconic street foods and a great meal for any time of day – granted not ideal for breakfast.

Why go? Though the fish unfortunately not longer comes from the Bosphorus (it has been imported from Norway for years), enjoying a balık ekmek cooked on a rocking boat in the Eminönü shore remains an Istanbul institution and a beloved weekend activity of families coming from all over the city.

Don’t miss: You might be tempted to sit down at any one of the restaurants below the Galata Bridge to feast on these tasty sandwiches, but nothing beats tucking into a balık ekmek on the go as you soak up views of the Bosphorus.
