Good, local restaurants in Istanbul?

I'm a foodie, what restaurants/food should I not miss and where should I go to eat in Istanbul?

TONS of good food in Istanbul!  If you want the traditional kabob-type food for cheap, try heading over to the Asia side - Kadıköy or Üsküdar.  A little wander off the main streets and you'll find something for sure. 

I also really love the non-Turkish food in Istanbul. Istanbul is a multicultural city with recent and long-term immigrant communities. There's a Latin American restaurant in Beyoğlu called La Paz that is utterly delicious!

Try everything and stay away from the touristy places (you know the ones - with a guy outside enticing you to come in), and you'll be very full and very happy.

You can find a large variety of anatolian tastes inc. breathtaking desserts at KANAAT LOKANTASI  in Üsküdar. Food is excellent however waiters are on the opposite side, they look a little bit bored of the busy restaurant.
