istanbul for vegetarians

Photograph by Thomas Cizauskas

Vegetarians should be OK in most food places since you will find salads and olive oil based vegetable dishes almost anywhere that you end up. A lot of tapas are made only out of vegatables, so taverns should not be a problem either. That said, restaurants catering solely to vegetarians and vegans are somewhat thin on the ground in Istanbul - probably due to the fact that, as said, a regular cafe or restaurant will have enough on their menu to keep all but the most exacting happy.

The following is a list which I compiled online. Not being a vegatarian myself, I cannot personally recommend them - only exception being Zencefil, which is very nice indeed:
