We are going to Istanbul for the first time next April for our 20th wedding anniversay and cruising the Med after. I read that you cannot drink the water, even in the hotels, but only bottled water. Does this mean you cannot drink the coffee or tea? What about the food? What can or cannot you eat over there? I don't even know what turkish food is, other than kebabs. I just don't want to take a chance of getting sick while on an 18 day vacation. Any and all suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
