There are those who look after their sourdough as they would a child, cultivating it to perfection over time. One such person is Olcay Gu¨neş, whose new space in Moda derives its name from the weight of his breads. The menu revolves around bread made by Gu¨neş using six-year-old sourdough. You’ll find toasts and sandwiches like the fresh thyme, tulum cheese and sundried tomato sandwich (8 TL), which are both filling and bursting with flavor down to the last bite. The eggs and greens come from a garden in Yakacık, while the cheese, olives and jams are brought in from other cities throughout Turkey. We recommend trying the breakfast platter (22.50 TL), which includes three types of cheese, two types of olives, grilled eggplant and pepper sauce, ham, clotted cream made with buffalo milk as well as homemade jams. At lunchtime you’ll find a buffet of olive oilbased dishes such as crispy zucchini with aged kaşar cheese, rustic peppers with yogurt or artichokes in olive oil, at 18 TL per plate. Needless to say, sourdough bread is the perfect accompaniment to both breakfasts and lunches here.
