Fodor's Review

This ocakbaşı, or grill house, is popular for its delicious food, authentic feel, and especially lively atmosphere. The wide variety of kebabs are cooked on a special grill over hardwood coals—part of the fun here is watching the chefs at work—and include some cuts of meat not found on the average kebab menu, such as kaburga (lamb ribs). The meze are also particularly tasty, among them such unique dishes as kabak ezmesi, or pumpkin spread (available only in fall/winter), and Van-style cacık, a dip made from thick strained yogurt, cucumber, onions, and herbs.
