Çiya Sofrası

Anatolian in Kadıköy

Known throughout the culinary world, Musa Dağdeviren's lokanta (eatery serving ready-made food) showcases dishes from regional Turkey and is a wonderful place to sample treats such as lahmacun (Arabic-style pizza), içli köfte (meatballs rolled in bulgar and fried) and perde pılavı (chicken and rice in pastry casing). No alcohol, but the homemade şerbet (sweet fruit drink) is a delicious accompaniment.

Vegetarians are very well catered for here, but should avoid Çiya's adjoining kebapçı (kebaps ₺18 to ₺40), which sells a huge variety of tasty meat dishes.
