International cuisine in Split has developed significantly in the last year or two. One place at the forefront of this global push is İştah, Split’s first Turkish restaurant, owned and operated by Onad Ozyurt and his Split-born wife Tanja, in an office building close to the Poljud stadium. The main feature of the menu is meze, especially the kebab variations, with a wide range of vegetable side dishes and other snacks. Prices are more than friendly and the food even better than these prices might suggest. İştah is also the only venue of any kind in Dalmatia with a halal certificate. It’s a dry ship too, but the mint lemonades are just what you might need in the middle of summer. The location isn’t central but football fans might just appreciate Turkish cuisine.
