Zenger Paşa Konağı information
Crammed with Ottoman ephemera, the Zenger Paşa at first looks like a deserted ethnographic museum, but climb up the rickety stairs and you'll find views of the city that are worth a visit alone. The menu of pide (Turkish-style pizza), meze and grills isn't going to get marks for originality but it's a solid lunch bet within the citadel area.
Bands playing traditional music often provide a weekend accompaniment, and it's not all that unusual for spontaneous dancing to break out.
