This much-loved baklavacı (baklava shop) opened in 1949 and was the first İstanbul branch of a business established in Gaziantep in the 1820s. A family feud has since led to the opening of other Güllüoğlu offshoots around town, but this remains the best. Pay for a porsiyon (portion) of whatever takes your fancy at the register, then order at the counter.

The most popular baklava flavours are fıstıklı (pistachio) and cevizli (walnut), and many regulars order a serve of kaymak (clotted cream) on the side. A glass of tea will take the edge off the sweetness. Note that the börek (filled pastry) here is good too.
