Highlights of these menus are tarama (special dish from fish’s roes), plum stuffed calamari, Greek style grilled octopus with noodles, ‘Arap Aşı’ soup with ‘cacık’ (cold dish of diluted yogurt, cucumbers and garlic), hünkar beğendi, lakerda (salt-cured bonito), kalamata olives, şulina, pirşuta, cerviş, tavçema and tarator (meze dish with walnuts). On Fridays and Sundays, you can enjoy your meal with a live fasıl program. Their play list includes Greek songs and Balkan ‘Sevdalinka’s as well as Turkish classics, pop and special remixes.
