These guys can be found all over the city, and are a favorite first thing in the morning or just before you board a ferry (from which you'll inevitably see passengers throwing bits of simit out to expectant seagulls). Simit, a round bread usually dipped in sesame seeds, is a simple but delicious breakfast or snack. If you want to spice it up a bit, as for a wedge of cheese (the ubiquitous laughing cow) or for a more indulgent snack a slather of nutella paste. You'll get a taste of Istanbul every single time.

Simit is a circular bread covered in sesame seeds. It's delicious and can be found from street vendors all over the city, usually for just 1 lira. Pair it with Ayran (yoghurt drink) or tea. I've highlighted Taksim Square as there are usually guys walking round serving tea as well but you can find Simit sellers on every other corner. The city-centre sellers usually have red carts.
