Fish Season & Fish and Bread in Istanbul Old city
Anyone who visits Istanbul must eat fish and bread (balık ekmek) in Eminonu Istanbul Old City(fish sandwich; balık=fish, ekmek=bread). Seriously. It's not a must in law or anything, but eating a grilled fish sandwich next to the sea is as required of tourists in Istanbul as many local people doing. Fruitfull fish season makes the people happy and enjoy more fish. It also effects the fish and bread prices to come down with much better taste of the cold water fishes. Please do not forget to have turnip pickle juice with fish and bread which is the regular local way as you will see.
