"Carb" loading in Istanbul

Post by SuomiOz » Mon Oct 10, 2011 9:59 am


As Istanbul Marathon approaches I wonder if anyone has any tips on where to eat to "carb load" before the race. We normally eat a lot of pasta, bread and potatoes - and avoid meat and spicy foods! I've had a google for options but if anyone can recommend a place suitable that would be great!

We're staying in Sultanahmet and can travel for food.
