Fodor's Expert Review Khorasani

$$$ Sultanahmet Turkish

One of Sultanahmet's most outstanding restaurants emphasizes the Arab- and Kurdish-influenced cuisine of southeastern Turkey, from where the restaurant's owners hail. This translates to delicious meze like hummus, muhammara (hot pepper and walnut spread), and thyme salad, as well as tasty kebabs like the lamb shish. Interesting non-kebab main dishes include chicken stew, which has chunks of meat in a thick sauce of onions, mushrooms, and sweet pumpkin. Diners can sit outdoors on the cobblestoned sidewalk or get a table inside to watch the chefs prepare kebabs over the large charcoal grill.
