The Fener-Balat neighborhood by the Golden Horn has become a favorite among photographers who can’t get enough of the dilapidated yet beautiful old Greek Orthodox and Armenian churches and homes. However, the neighborhood has also started to become an attractive area for new establishments (as well as some very delicious classics). We took a look at the best eats in Fener-Balat.
You’d probably walk right past this restaurant because there seems to be nothing special about it. However, beneath the informality is an absolutely delicious and straightforward menu of buttery rice, mangalda kurufasulye (Turkish bean stew cooked on a charcoal grill), some of the best köfte in town, thick and delicious yogurt, and delightfully sour turşu (pickled vegetables).
