in Aksaray

This friendly, super-clean lokanta (eatery serving ready-made food) dishes up solid versions of Turkish classics such as patlıcan kebap (cubed or minced meat grilled with aubergine) and kuru fasulye (stewed beans). It's hugely popular with local families. It's just north of the Ulu Cami on the same road as the bulky, beautiful Ottoman building that houses the lisesi (high school).
