A cafeteria for people who work in Maslak.
This brand-new restaurant in Atatürk Oto Sanayi Sitesi was created with lunch crowds in mind. The bright yellow doors and brick walls featuring graffiti by renowned street artist Leo Lunatic give the space a modern touch, while its mezzanine pays tribute to the restaurant’s industrial setting. The clientele is almost entirely comprised of white-collar workers from Maslak, and you’ll likely be greeted by a sea of laptops (though the mezzanine, whenever it isn’t booked for meetings, is a quieter place to get work done).
Pomelo serves a daily menu; on our visit, we noticed dishes like mung bean and tahini salad, shredded chicken with curry sauce, and pumpkin tart. The salads are also quite filling, our favorite being the chicken salad with honey-mustard dressing and a hint of orange flavor. The dishes featuring seasonal fruits and vegetables are priced around 20 TL, while the breakfast options like oatmeal with dried fruits make Pomelo a great option for the early risers.
