Sen Manti Evi - Home made cooking in Narlidere

If you're looking for real home made food, Turkish style, then this is the place to go!

At least four different kinds of çorba (soup), a variety of delicious gözleme (a kind of thin börek, or filo pastry filled with a variety of ingredients such as meat and cheese), meat balls (also available with melted cheese on top), salads, and more.

Also a great spot for late Sunday breakfast (toast, jam, honey, cheese, fruit, coffee, tea, etc.) or for a snack after food shopping in near-by Kipa, Migros, or Tansas.

In an charmingly bucolic and open air environment, meals are served steaming hot in the dishes they were prepared in, while you are seated on wooden benches under the cool shade of trees.

If you're lucky, (or tend to eat outside of regular meal times) you might even get to see the Manti prepared or the cheese beaten and squeezed in white linen cloths.

The staff are really friendly, the prices are unbeatable (for two, never paid more than 23 YTL tip excluded) and they have an English menu!

It's worth your while, check it out.
