This very Turkish dessert is one of a kind and Cinaralti is, without question, the best interpretation I have come across .. thanks to my friends from this area that is known for the specialty. The best way to describe this unique product, with my...Asian palate, is the equivalent of a Japanese “moji” in texture with toasted shredded wheat that is garnished with pistachio nuts sprinkles and a delicious hard ice cream .. words cannot describe this wonderful flavor .. a must for anyone who has any interest in the finer definitions of Turkish cuisine.More
We're sure there are many places that serve good künefe in Hatay, we did try this one though, since we've read that he is one of the best and we confirm that. This is without any doubt the best that we've ever had. We've tried...it in other cities in Turkey but the taste was not even close to Yusuf usta's heavenly künefe, with some pistachios and ice cream on top!!!!! Incredibly delicious.More
Cinaralti is a striking example of the over marketed place that, in it’s turn, always brings to an overvaluation. I mean that it is too much spoken about and every tourist knows that the best kunefe is at Cinaralti. I wouldn’t impugn the quality of...kunefe: it is outstanding. Nevertheless, I would have been really happy if the staff was much more friendly, quick and helpful. Same about the way they clean the tables: I prefer when the used stuff is taken away pretty quickly - not only when you ask for it.More
You should taste this. It is the local sweet which has cheese in it and very sweet.
Personally i like it to be cooked in smaller portions but this version is not bad.
The original thing about this place is they cook it on wood...coal which gives it an extra smoky taste.
Künefe is the special dessert of Antakya and this tiny künefe shop is the place that offers the best. Located inside one of the old bazaars, this place has barely couple of tables and stools and is always busy at any time of the day....What makes this small restaurant so special is the way they cook the künefe: they do it on live coals. If you have only one chance to eat künefe when in Antakya, I recommend to taste it here, you won't regret it. But of course, make sure not to expect a "comme il faut" café or restaurant, this is a very simplistic place.More
We had to wait for the fresh batch to be ready. It is, after all, a strongly sweetened dough with fatty cheese. To heavy for my taste, equally popular with others. If you are not into künefe, not necessarily a must.
