Perhaps Kalkanoğlu is the uncle (or aunty) of many Istanbulites. How else could you explain the existence of a food business since 1856 in a suburb bursting at the seams with restaurants? And, strictly speaking, a culinary one-trick pony at that? The answer lies in...More

We visited this casual restaurant on our Istanbul on Food tour. The pilav was EXCELLENT, cooked with bone marrow and fresh butter. The restaurant is off Itsikial Street and just right for a casual supper.

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
