Unsigned and unassuming, this famous köftecisi first opened in 1947 and is overseen by the son of the original 'meatball seller'. It is known for its köfte (meatballs) served with piyaz (white beans). Look for the run-down red-brick building with white, wooden windows on the ground floor; there are usually a couple of tables and some stools outside.
