Istanbul. June, 2007

Some Americans shudder at the idea of fish being served to them in European or Asian restaurants because it hasn’t been filleted before it comes to table. And they’re missing out on a great treat when they don’t order it. Remove the head. remove the tail. Then filet it yourself along the central frame. Flip it over and filet the other side. Or ask a waiter to do it for you. They’ve done it hundreds of times and know what they’re doing. The grilled-on-the-bone taste is worth any effort. (Seen here, a wonderful treat at the equally wonderful Beyoğlu restaurant Sofyalı 9.)
