Comida Turca

Whilst wandering around Istanbul with Luis, my lovely ravenous Peruvian local guide (haha! I like this definition), trying different kinds of food became a must! Marvelous sweets, a full immersion into baklava's world; street barrows selling any kind of food around the city, all day and night long; fresh fish and doner kebab. We tried everything, and everything was wonderful!
After dancing all night long, you can have mussels filled with rice in the street, always full of people (I saw this amount of people in the street only in Japan, almost like in Shibuya). During the day you can stop anywhere to have a cai, tea, in those cute small glasses. There are food barrows in every corner and you can eat at any hour!
Cucumber, Simit and Kestane barrows.
Durum, Pomegranate and Churros barrows.
Lokum and Baklava
Turkish coffee, cai,viskender  doner and onions at the market.
Dried fruits, paprika, vegetables and sish kebab
Teas, spices, nuts and dry fruits.
Macum and gözleme.
Kitchen boats preparing balik ekmek, fish market, women buying fish at a local market, grilled fish cookers and those tasty sandwiches! 
Dondurma - Turkish icecream.
