Local from Istanbul

This hole-in-the-wall kebab place makes some of the tastiest kebabs in the city from the freshest ingredients. Don’t expect much, the place is as basic as it gets, but you will find yourself returning here time and again, because frankly, it’s very hard to beat. Chunks of grilled meat, greens, and onions stuffed into a wrap. Get the double if you’re really hungry. The prices are cheaper than most street kebab places, but the quality is incomparable. Discovered by Chef Anthony Bourdain on his last trip to Istanbul.

First to Review

Apparently this place was featured on No Reservations (which I didn't know until I arrived). All I know is that it had really high reviews and was located super close to our apartment and Beyoglu.

Since there are maybe 3 tables there and since it was snowing outside, my friend and I each ordered a kebap plate (one beef, one chicken) and took the items to go.

Omg. Anthony Bourdain doesn't have a food show for nothing. The flavors were exquisite, the food delicious (chicken was better than beef FYI) and it was all very cheap.

Yes, it's located in a tiny dark alley in an even smaller venue, but I'm all about the good local flavors, and this place is not to be missed.

Durumzade es de esos lugares de los que uno, a simple vista, no espera demasiado. Chiquito, con poca iluminación, algo escondido y con decoración súper simple, es, sin embargo, uno de los mejores lugares donde comer durum kebab en Estambul y es cada día más popular.
