this looks like an amazing place!


Hi Kat - It was nice to travel around a bit more than we had!


Interesting that Asmali Cavit was just okay. It gets quite a lot of buzz on various websites as one of the meyhanes with the best food. I get the impression that meyhanes are about the ambiance, the companionship and of course the raki. I suppose I need to visit at least one meyhane when in Istanbul. Just not sure which one.


Hi Senor - Ciya Sofrasi lived up to the hype, Asmali Cavit did not. We did find a meyhane we enjoyed enough to return three times. I just need to get around to posting about it.


Hey Kirk,
Do you mind mentioning here the name of the meyhane you enjoyed three times. I will be heading off to Istanbul in a few weeks. Thanks.


Hi Senor - This is a bit of a walk, past all tourist fish restaurants and past tourist central of Kumkapi to Yenikapi.

Gaziantep Sahre Restaurant
Kennedy Caddesi No 130 Sahilyolu Yenikapi, Istanbul.

0212 530027984

Go during the evening. Everyone we saw there were locals, there's only one Server who understands limited English. I'll try to get a post done this weekend.


Thanks. That's quite a find. I didn't see much about this restaurant on the internet so it's definitely under the tourist radar.


Hi Senor - Here's a photo of our favorite dish at Sahre. It's made from raw lamb and was just plain delicious.


Kirk, I am going to guess that is mint on top of the raw lamb. Lamb and mint are one of those combinations that are made for each other. Thanks again.
