Where to eat in Sultanahmet, Istanbul

antman | Jan 28, 2010 10:29 PM

Like many posters on this board, I've searched hard and still had many a disappointing meal in Sultanahmet, Istanbul. The place is just a minefield of tourist traps, guys hassling you on the street to buy rugs or eat in their restaurant. It can be hell. But that's where the monuments are and you just can't miss the Aya Sofia.
Here's a link to what looks like a very promising resource for people looking to avoid the tourist traps around there. I can vouch for the spots on Hocapasa Sokak. Its really a diner's paradise.
