Beşiktaş Fish Market
While the banks of the Golden Horn in tourist-friendly Eminönü have plenty of fish sandwiches, stuffed mussels, and a small seafood market, most locals travel to Beşiktaş for their extensive daily fish market and surrounding meyhanes. The market is sheltered by an enormous triangular concrete awning resembling an airplane hangar, under which fishmongers belt out their daily catch and restaurant waiters try to lure you in for dinner. Beşiktaş is home for one of the city’s most popular football teams and is lively with students even on non-game nights, particularly since Istanbul’s artisanal coffee shop boom; find a cluster of spots between the market, ferry terminal, and W Hotel on Süleyman Sok.
