If you need fuel in between bargaining at the Grand Bazaar and Spice Market in Eminonu, stop in for lunch at the restaurant above Namli Pastirmaci. A language barrier won’t be a big issue as you can point to whatever looks tasty; good bets are mercimek (red lentil) soup and stuffed eggplant. You can find edible souvenirs at Namli’s downstairs deli, including charcuterie and all manner of cured meats. Namli also has a gourmet shop in Karakoy, selling olive oil, honey, pickles, and other foodstuffs, and is a popular spot for breakfast.
