Balık ekmek is another typical Istanbul snack, and pretty tasteful and safe when prepared fresh. It’s pretty straightforward – a grilled or fried fresh fish inside a large piece of bread. The best way to explore this snack is in Eminönü, left from the Galata Bridge.

You’ll see them prepare the sandwiches on the nicely lined up boats, after which they hand them to customers on the shore.
