IMG_1458Another good eat near the touristy area is this famous place called Tarihi Sultanahmet Koftecisi Selim usta that’s opened since the 1920s. Beware however, there’s a place few shops down that has very similar name, and we almost got fooled. Locates very close to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Basilica Cistern, this is the perfect place to grab lunch after sightseeing. The menu is small as they specialized only in few things. I love the bottles of this sparkling water btw!

There’s really only one thing to get here and it’s the famous grill meat ball (Izgara köfte). Love it! Juicy, perfectly spiced and great texture. They give you a basket of bread (very good) which you can eat the meat balls with. You can also put different types of chilies for topping.

We also got a side order of white bean salad and flavor rice as well.

Perfect simple good lunch. We tried many Kofte at many other places later and none of them taste anywhere as good as this.
