Tarihi Sultanahmet Köftecisi

Divan Yolu 12
Istanbul , Turkey http://www.sultanahmetkoftesi.com/
(90-212) 520-0566

In the heart of the Old Town of Sultanahmet on busy Divanyolu street is a row of restaurants specializing in köfte; the best is the 81-year-old family-run Tarihi Sultanahmet Köftecisi, where locals line up for heavenly smoky plates of grilled meatballs, often served with a lemon-dressed white bean salad ($15). Wash everything down with a carton of ayran, Turkey’s national yogurt drink.
