You can go to a neighborhood milkshop like Boris’in Yeri on Ordekli Bakkal Sk. 17, in the neighborhood of Kumkapi where you can get just about any product made with milk, like yogurt, cheese and kasandibi which is a sort of pudding that is carmalized on the bottom, well the top actually because they serve it upside down but they make it by slightly burning it. It's better than it sounds. That's Cem, our pal and unofficial guide who moved to Istanbul from Carrboro, North Carolina a few years ago.
