Istanbul. October, 2011

Hamsı. The Black sea anchovies fabled in legend and in song. Here they are on sale at the Galata fish market. And you can have them lightly battered and fried up just steps away at one of the many casual “restaurants” set up along the waterside. No fuss, no muss, just real good eating. (Alas, our next trip to the City of the World's Desire will not fall within hamsı season. But we've never had a problem finding good food in Istanbul.)
