Tursu suyu (pickle juice)

Galata bridge fish vendors
Galata Bridge, Istanbul

Sold by the balik ekmek (fish sandwich) vendors down by Galata Bridge (Eminönü side), tur┼ču suyu is a potent companion drink: pickled cucumber and cabbage with lots of bright pink pickle juice. Mouth-puckering but refreshing--as a fan of pickled everything, I enjoyed it!
