Looking for the most authentic nibbles in the world? T+L finds 10 global markets where the eating is easy.

Grand Bazaar (Kapali Çarşi), Istanbul

6 of 11

With more than 4,000 shops spread out over 65 covered streets, Istanbul’s 15th-century bazaar is the place to stock up on kilims and 24-karat bangles. Naturally, the army of vendors needs to be fed, which explains the market’s delicious food finds.

Best Bites: Goldsmiths, rug lords, and copperware kings pack into the homey Subaşi (lunch for two $30) for fortifying white beans in tomato sauce and chicken stuffed with rice. To sample the ultimate meat wrap, grab a succulent döner at Dönerci Şahin Usta (lunch for two $12), near the Nuruosmaniye Gate. At the picturesque Cebeci Han caravansary, Kara Mehmet Kebap Salonu (kebabs for two $12) serves the city’s tastiest kebabs. —Anya von Bremzen
