Amaseia Mutfağı

Top choice Anatolian

in Amasya

Head up the creaky stairs to the dining room of this old Ottoman house to dig into regional flavours of etli bamya (lady fingers and meat stew), toyga çorbası (a minty yoghurt, wheat and chickpea soup) and mantı (Turkish ravioli). If you're lucky, grab one of the tables on the tiny balcony for excellent riverfront views.

The menu offers typical Turkish grills as well but it's its local dishes you should be ordering.
