Adem Baba Review
This place is the Turkish version of a New England fish shack, with nets and crab traps hanging from the ceiling in three venues located around the corner from one other. Families and groups come here to enjoy simple, fresh, and well-prepared fish, at much less than what they would pay at some of the fancier seafood restaurants along the Bosphorus (it's cheaper in part because no alcohol is served). A refrigerated display at the entrance holds the day's catch. To start, order the fried calamari and the tasty balık köftesi (fish cakes); the main course of dil şiş (skewers of sole) is also excellent. Adem Baba is in Arnavutköy, a low-key Bosphorus neighborhood that's perfect for a stroll before or after dinner.
