I have a very sensitive stomach and am also allergic to shellfish. I'm hoping I will be able to enjoy some of the local cuisine, although I must admit I am not a vey adventurous eater when it comes to eating different types of meats. I am wondering about a few things:
I don't see chicken mentioned much in the restaurant forums when people are critiquing their meals. Is chicken not very common?
Do restaurants usually have vegetarian options?
Do restaurants in Istanbul follow any food handling guidlines to avoid cross contamination.
I love bread & pastries. Are there any Turkish specialities? Savoury & sweet.
I may add that my husband has no food issues at all and will want to sample everything in sight!!!!!
