There are plenty of Sultanahmet Köftecisi restaurants in Istanbul, but the original is the Tarihi Sultanahmet Köftecisi, and is predictably in Sultanahmet. The restaurant which has another branch on the Asian side, continues to protect its popularity despite the numerous imitation restaurants in the city. Continuing for years without compromising in quality, aside from the köfte (meatballs), piyaz (dried beans, onions and parsley) which are the main fixtures, there are alternatives that you can order, including lamb skewers, rice and salad. The restaurant which has tables spread around the entire building, maintains the original décor, the, marble tables and creaky stairs all add to the venue’s authenticity. As well as Istanbul residents looking for the real köfte flavor, the restaurant is also frequented by tourists. The köfte feast at the Tarihi Sultanahmet Köftecisi can be finalized with ‘irmik helvası’ (semolina dessert). Credit cards are accepted at the Selamiçeşme branch.
