Well, you can have some traditional Turkish food... Desserts are fine... Tzatziki (Cacık in Turkish) is highly recommended... Payment only cash! Bear in mind: I am Turkish and quiet selective concerning Turkish food :)

Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on
the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s
