As we stayed in a hotel nearby, we walked to this Kumkapi area just to check the restaurants. This was in the middle of Ramadan, all the restaurants in this area were empty, and the ´´sellers´´were desperate to pull the tourists in their own restaurant....More

A couple of days after New Year's I strolled down to Kumkapi from Sultanahmet. I walked around and looked at all the restaurants and I selected Ege on the basis of two criteria: no touts in front of the restaurant and many locals (Turks) visibly...More
