Istanbul is a city in Turkey. There are many vegan alternatives around, from specific restaurants to street food.

Street Food

Etsiz çiğ köfte - traditionally made with raw meat, it became illegal to sell that version (although if you are offered homemade çiğ köfte it is likely meat, so ask). Luckily they decided to make it vegan-friendly! It contains bulgur, tomato paste, red pepper paste, spices, chopped onions, green onions, fresh mint, parsley, pomegranate syrup and lemon. It is eaten as a dürüm with bread (3TL), or you can buy a portion with just the ingredients for about 6 to 10TL.

Mercimek çorbası and ezogelin çorbası (lentil soup) - available in lokantas and restaurants everywhere, normally for between 1 and 3 lira. Occasionally made with fat however, so ask if you can! Comes with free bread always.

Fasulyeli Pilav (beans and rice) - occasionally cooked with chicken or beef broth, so definitely ask! Costs around 3TL, very filling. Also available in kiosks, restaurants and lokantas.
