surprisingly many Istanbul restaurants have pork meat, and perhaps because many of these cater to tourists and upper class, they have websites with menus visible. on the menus, items with pork are usually marked with a red asterix or a small pork character...

but its lovely to see there is prosciutto, ham, bacon and sausages available. Italian restaurants really shone, they are well represented when it comes to pork here... they are apparently not willing to make adjustments to great classic dishes that contain pork.

a lot of these places have facebook pages too, review pages on TripAdvisor etc., but im old schools - if they have a  website, thats what i link to.
