If you are in Trabzon and want to eat something special go to kalkanoglu pilavcisi, this is family run business and they have the same quality food for long long time. you must try their rice with beans and the final with hosaf .

You can taste the real butter and freshness of the meat - I had the dry bean dish with rice and my husband had the meat - these are the only things they serve and they make them well!
