Wish You Were Here Postcards – Street Food, Istanbul

by Amanda McInerney on 19/02/2014

street-vendor stall, Istanbul

Clearly, food is pretty high on my agenda when I travel. Street food is one of the most genuine ways to eat in any country, although it is also an area where caution is often advised. During my trip to Istanbul last year I spent a fabulous day getting to know the local food scene on a food tour with Istanbul Eats. The tour led us through many of the back streets and in and out of stores and cafes that are not generally on the tourist map. We wound up in the Kurdish part of town, passing this vendor with his cart full of barbecued sheeps heads. This was a treat I managed to resist – I was heading to a restaurant for lunch, after all. ;-)

Nothing better than traveling and coming upon wonderful street food.

I don’t know how you passed on the sheeps’ heads… ;-)

I did wonder what those were. Good to know nothing goes to waste in Istanbul! I think I would have joined you at the restaurant for lunch though! xx

De…licious…. I didn’t see any sheep heads in Turkey but did see some equally confronting whole sheep with head in tact in Croatia. Very unattractive. I love this quick little post Amanda – great job!
