You can eat the Turkish fish sandwich on the spot while sitting on barrels of wine as seats. The atmosphere is very agitated, surrounded by young men dressed in folk costume.
You can also eat the sandwiches at Karakoy Port too. The menu is simple, it consists of daily fresh fish sandwiched in Turkish White Bread with onions, sprinkled with lemon and dusted with salt.
It is also a good opportunity to sip a good glass of Tursu (pieces of pickles and cabbage in brine). In front of you, you will stand the Galata Tower on the hills of Pera.
Turkish Fish Sandwich Price
‘Voyages Turquie’ recommends you going to Eminonu during the week and not on weekends because Saturday and Sunday is an opportunity for families living in the suburbs of the city to spend their day in an inexpensive way, for only 15 TL. They come with the whole family to spend a day at the edge of the Golden Horn, at the spice market district (also open on Sunday) and eat a small fish sandwich (very cheap). It is almost impossible to take a walk by the Golden Horn when the weather is nice.
Afiyet olsun! (Bon appétit in Turkish)
