Do pay a visit if you visit Taksim - the shop is the size of a small convenience store but the food is simply out of this world. It’s not a typical Turkish takeaway with lots of varieties whatsoever - it’s simply a rice-with-meat shop....More
Basic but good food, just the kind of place I like to visit when I am travelling. it was Ramadan, so we had to vacate our table before the rush of reservations afte sunset. This was not a problem, and its popularity confirmed our positive...More
Kuru fasülye- pilav is a highly consumed combination of turkish cusinie and a loved street food type. This is one of the most delicious and tasty pilav combinations that you can eat at İstanbul. Highly recomended.
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
This is the first place that I go when I'm in Beyoğlu district. They only make three kinds of meal. Buttered rice, braised meat and haricot beans. The beans are delicious as well but I always prefer rice and meat. They are to die for....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.
In a side street from the touristic Istiklal street (with the charming tram) we found a small restaurant serving only rice with beans and a delicious stew. It is visited by locals having lunch and few tourists. For us it was a tasty alternative to...More

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.
