Eating Istanbul Nights

The Galata Bridge in Istanbul spans the Golden Horn and connects the Blue Mosque area, where we stayed, with the more downtown section of the city. During the day, there are seafood restaurants open on the second level of the bridge. And at night, just to the side of the bridge, there is a floating fish restaurant.

The fish boats, with their fresh catch, pull up and begin on-boat cooking, serving just-caught fish wedged between equally fresh bread. The hungry of Istanbul — families, friends, tourists, shoppers, and groups of teens — line up at the boats, get their sandwiches, buy drinks and dine al fresco.
