►Check out my Istanbul Travel Guide: http://bit.ly/Istanbul-Guide ►Subscribe to my videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►Camera I use: http://bit.ly/2d2TA0G Day 10: Istanbul, Turkey - This was one of the best days of eating Turkish food in Istanbul that I had during my visit, and this video is an Istanbul food tour. We started with Turkish breakfast, followed by the famous fish bread sandwich (balik ekmek), followed by kokoreç and midye dolma, and then finally for dinner I ate lahmacun. Although everything was good in this Istanbul food tour, my favorite food of the day was the kokoreç. 00:41 Lades Menemen Restaurant - The first meal on this Turkish food tour was for Turkish breakfast just off Istiklal street. Along with some side dishes, my main order was menemen, which is a type of Turkish egg dish (similar to scrambled eggs) and I got it with Turkish sausage. It came piping hot and bubbling away, and it was extraordinarily delicious, especially with all the other sides. Total price - 34 TL ($11.43) for everything 4:56 Galata Tower - 25 TL ($8.40) per person - On this food tour, we still had to do a little bit of sightseeing, so on our way to the next restaurant, we stopped off at the Galata Tower for an amazing full 360 view of Istanbul. We got there right as they opened, so it was nice and quiet. Galata Bridge, Eminönü, Balık Ekmek - Perhaps one of the most well known Istanbul street foods is, balık ekmek, a fish bread sandwich. Located in Eminönü, and along the water's edge, you’ll find a handful of boats that grill up pieces of mackerel, stuff them into bread, and serve them with lemon juice. You can sit along the pier, and enjoy your fish bread sandwich, and not only is it good, but the atmosphere is also fantastic. Balik Ekmek (fish sandwich) - 8 TL ($2.69) 10:56 Spice Bazaar (Egyptian Bazaar) - If I could choose one of my favorite things to do in Istanbul, it would be exploring the Spice Bazaar which is also known as the Egyptian Bazaar. You’ll find an incredible amount of spices and herbs and flavoring ingredients from around the world, packed into the market. After walking around for a while, Ying and I decided to buy some cherries, and the friendly vendor also gave us some samples of fruit as well. Cherries - 1 kg. for 12 TL ($4.03) 13:35 Süleymaniye Mosque - We were in the general area, so we stopped in at Süleymaniye Mosque, an iconic mosque in Istanbul that dominates the skyline. 15:21 Kral Kokoreç - The next food on this Istanbul food tour is kokoreç, and it’s one of the Turkish foods I was most looking forward to eating in Istanbul. Kral Kokoreç is an amazing, sort of street food stall in Istanbul. Kokoreç is a delicacy of organs wrapped in lamb intestines and grilled. I ordered a plate of it to go alongside some bread and it was spectacular. It was one of the best Turkish food meals I had, I loved it. They also sold midye dolma, mussels with rice and spices, and they were also wonderful. Total price - 29 TL ($9.71) - for everything. 22:42 Grand Bazaar - After that amazing meal, we walked over to the Grand Bazaar, which is not only one of the oldest covered markets in Istanbul, but one of the oldest covered shopping areas in the world. It was pretty amazing to walk around, and admire the shops and the actual structure of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. I think the tea was 1 TL ($0.34). 25:47 Fıstık Kebap Lahmacun - To complete this Istanbul food tour, our final stop for dinner was at a restaurant called Fıstık Kebap Lahmacun (thanks to Culinary Backstreets for the recommendation: http://culinarybackstreets.com/cities-category/istanbul/2013/top-3-lahmacun/) to eat lahmacun. At first we started off with aryan and kibbeh, before proceeding onto the lahmacun, pide, and the special fistik kebap. Everything was delicious, but I think I really liked the simplicity and lightness of the lahmacun the best. Total price - 58 TL ($19.49). And that completes this video of the ultimate Turkish food tour of Istanbul, it was an amazing day of food!

O kadar yabancıların Türkiye yemekleri yediği videoları izledim bi bu adam bizim gibi doğru yiyo yani menemene ekmek banar karabiber döker,balık ekmeğin limonunu tuzunu döker,kaymağı ekmeğiyle alır. Böyle yiyince anlaşılıyo zaten doğru tatları,yani balık ekmekte limon suyu yerine limon verseler daha da iyi olurdu kesin diyo hakkaten adam bizim ağız tadımıza sahip :D

Nice but just for info lahmacun ain't turkish food it was practically not known 30 years ago. It came from southeast. I don't know the history of it, if it is genuine or just a copy of pizza. It is just like pizza but thinner Doug and no cheese.

Mark😁 the best breakfast I've ever had in my life was in a small village near Marmaris (south of Turkey), we chose to sit outside the restaurant below a huge tree with some morning dew drops 😁the village was surrounded by mountains & it was a breakfast turned a brunch!!🤗🤗

There is a Mexican dish called "Huevos a la Mexicana" and it literally has the same exact same ingredients.  The only difference is that "Huevos a la Mexicana" is a dish that is served well done and with corn tortillas, not bread.  I was pretty surprised to see that both Turkey and Mexico share a breakfast dish, and that both countries offer it as one of the most traditional and preferred breakfast dishes in their countries.  But keeping in mind that Europe and Asia caused a great impact in Mexico with the great flows of European and Asian immigration into Mexico during the years of the country's formation, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.  I think that this video can be a good reminder to us Mexicans about the importance of remembering and paying tribute to our European and Asian ancestry.  Because even though we are taught to mostly pay tribute to our indigenous culture since we are young, we must not forget that at one point European and Asian culture and gastronomy had a great impact in Mexico.  Thank you for sharing this video.  I truly enjoyed it.

I really love your video and it makes me really happy, thank you so much. However, the music whis is playing back, It is not Turkish style, not from our culture. I know most of people around the world think this. But this is a common known wrong. We have sense of music from Asia to Europe and Mesopotamia. I appreciate the video.

Neden yabancılar bizim yemeklerimizi vs. beğenince bu kadar çok seviniyorum acaba. Bizim yemeklerimizi dünyaya sunsalar Mcdonals ve Burger King batar, aynı zaman Türk Kahvesi bir Starbucks'a meydan okuyabilir nitelikte. Zaten yemek ve içecek açısından zengin bir ülkede bu şirketlerin olması bile baştan bir saçmalık.
