It would be entirely insufficient to call köfte a “Turkish meatball” because it’s so much more than that. Hand-kneaded thoroughly with various spices and herbs, as well as onion, garlic, and bread crumbs (usually), Turkish köfte has many different variations, ingredients, and accompaniments, depending on every region and every cook. Here is a countdown to some great places where you can indulge in the ultimate Turkish comfort food.

A real tourist favorite, Tarihi Sultanahmet Köftecisi Selim Usta has somehow managed to remain very authentic and true to his recipe. You’ll find the classic köfte, which hasn’t changed since the restaurant’s founding in 1920, along with piyaz and ayran.
