Kokoreç is a popular delicacy but it seems to be fabricated here. There were pre prepared half bread Kokoreç piles due to the demand. But.. We had near cold Kokoreç and the serving hardly filled the bread. It is not cost effective. I don't know why such a famous business risk its future. Deep fried mussels were OK. Filled mussels...

We came here on our Istanbul street food adventure to sample some of the sheep intestine dishes. On night one we sampled some "sheep meat" sandwiches which was sheep intestines in a spicy mix. It masks all funny flavours and was actually very tasty and yummy. We accompanied this with a salty yogurt drink, Aryan. On night 2 we were... More

Sampiyon kokoreç is situated in the flower market on Istiklal Caddesi. It is a fast food place with a variety of dishes. It is spread around the city at different districs. I usually take an intestine (işkembe) soup as a starter. Then I continue with 2 consecutive quarter kokoreç-bread sandwiches. The price isnot high. This is the best kokoreç house... More

I visit Sampiyon Kokorec regularly when I visit Istiklal Caddesi. Today at noon time it was empty. I had an outside seat. I ordered a half 'Iskembe ' soup which was perfect. My quarter bread kokoreç was very dry and not up to the regular taste. The reason may be the few number of people in the restaurant and cooking... More

This is the, maybe 50+ time that I have visited Sampiyon Kokorec at the Flower market. I started with the işkembe (intestine) soup with garlic and vinegar. It was great. Then I ordered 2 consequtive quarter kokoreç sandwiches which were fantastic. If you want to try kokoreç in Istanbul, you must try it here.

This place is famous for its Kokorec (grilled-chopped intestines with spices) and is situated in one of Istanbul's historical passages, Çiçek Pasajı (Flower Alley) on Istiklal Caddesi in Beyoglu. They have the best 'kokorec' in Istanbul. Their işkembe soup (tripe soup) is also very tasty. You have to taste a bite in this trendy fast food place.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
