Tripe (cow’s stomach) soup with garlic vinegar...lamb’s cartilage collagen soup...
Spicy grilled sheep’s meat with hot chili...
All very adventurous local delicacies not for everyone!
Mussels dolma stuffed with rice was most palatable.
I'm not a big fan of street food yet, Şampiyon Kokoreç is the place I go to in case I'm in the mood of street food.
In fact, the place is no longer a classical street food vendor. Over the years, it got bigger, its...More
I have ordered soup and kokorec (a type of grill) and my friend ordered some stuffed mussles and chicken sish grill. We were happy both with service and quality of foods. Restaurant is so clean and everything is visible.
Kokoreç is a popular delicacy but it seems to be fabricated here.
There were pre prepared half bread Kokoreç piles due to the demand.
We had near cold Kokoreç and the serving hardly filled the bread. It is not cost effective. I don't know...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
