Just like most of the sidewalk cafes lining the streets of Istanbul, Cafe Fulya focuses on small plates, or mezes, that encourage guests to mix and match flavors. Guests can choose from plates of mushrooms stuffed with onions and peppers, yogurt blended with cucumber, garlic, and mint, or zucchini pancakes baked with feta cheese and topped with a garlic yogurt sauce. Traditional Turkish drinks accompany these mezes, with staff pouring either the thick Turkish coffee or the milky, creamy mixture of sahlep—a warm drink made from orchid roots. You can bring any drink you like with the cafe's BYOB policy, or stick to the restaurant's traditional juices such as sour cherry or apricot.

Helmed by Fabio Scarpelli, an energetic Italian with a serious sweet tooth, Golosa is best known for its dozen varieties of hot drinking chocolate. Unlike the messy, powder-based brews chugged in ski lodges and space stations that haven't yet realized they've been abandoned, Golosa's cups of cocoa are thick, authentic, and velvety smooth. Try the spicy Peperoncino kicked up with red chili pepper ($6), or sink into the warm caramel base of the salty, gooey Salata al Caramello ($6). Equally exotic elixirs such as the Cardamom and White Pepper ($6) and Speziata ($6) pair well with the tiramisu, chocolate crème brûlée, pumpkin cheesecake, and other forkable treats on Golosa's rotating menu.

Though it goes through its fair share of alligator meat and "Devil Dust," Beck's Cajun Cafe is not a medieval apothecary. Chefs receive alligator sausage directly from New Orleans, and dry rub the “Devil Dust" seasoning into cuts of meat awaiting the grill. This reverence for Cajun culinary tradition, along with many bowls of gumbo, has earned the stand its reputation as a Creole institution among the regulars of Reading Terminal Market. The squishy brain behind it all is chef Bill Beck, whose kitchen prowess has been documented on television programs, at Manhattan's James Beard House, and inside the homes of local hungry men. His menu layers traditional Louisiana eats with reinvented staples: beignets sell for Wednesday and Sunday breakfast along with egg, sausage, and cheese po’ boys. Lunchtime po’ boy variants feature fried oysters and catfish, and garnered the award for Best Sandwiches in Reading Terminal from Philadelphia magazine in 2011.
