Working on the final parts of my Turkey trip. Are there any restaurants or eateries that cannot be missed? Please let me know.

Hello, I have been to Istanbul 11 times...will give you a few ideas.

Sultanahmet area - Sultanahmet Tahrihi Koftecesi just a few doors down hill from Sultanahmet Tram Station with brown awnings. Suggest 2 portions of kofte with a side rice, bean salad chased-down with bottled Coka Cola.

Eminonu Ekmek Balik - tram downhill from Sultanahmet and exit Eminonu. From there get over to near the ferry stations where you'll find boats selling fresh fish in fresh baked bread doused with a splash of lemon juice. Can't miss this treat!

Bolu ET Lokantasi Besiktas - Ride the tram to Kabatas and from there take a cab to Besiktas and have cab driver leave you off at bus stop on the main road. Near the bus stop there is an underpass...cross under it and follow the road (eft) adjacent to underpass uphill about 50 meters and you'll see the restaurant there. Home style it!
