Not to be confused with the nearby Meşhur Sultanahmet Köftecisi, this no-frills place near the Sultanahmet tram stop is the most famous eatery in the Old City. It has been serving its slightly rubbery ızgara köfte (grilled meatballs) and bean salad to ultra-loyal locals since 1920, and shows no sign of losing its custom – there's often a queue outside.

Accompany your köfte with the green pickled chillies that are served on the side, or ask the waiter for some spicy red chilli sauce. No alcohol; ayran is the drink of choice.
