Grandma’s Modern Recipe: Karaköy Lokantası

With its delightful, modern, and simple flavors, Karaköy Lokantası finds its place on the palate, bringing a breath of fresh air to Turkish cuisine by adding its own unique rhythms next to the traditional tavern.

According to Chef Uğur Erbaş, Karaköy Lokantası draws its inspiration from the enchanting traces of Anatolia. With its diverse menu of leading flavors during lunch service, it offers guests the warmth of home. It establishes an extremely harmonious and simple balance between home cooking and professional cuisine. Thus, guests can enjoy the taste of the table with the intimacy of grandma’s kitchen, alongside their loved ones. Operating for over 20 years, this venue not only carries the traces of old times with its ceramic tiles on the walls but also offers a contemporary spirit with its turquoise ceramics. When we look at the delicate touches within the limits of ceramic details as a whole, it allows one to feel in harmony with the flow. Along with the charming atmosphere of Beyoğlu, the taste of its dishes creates a harmonious feeling.

Karaköy Lokantası, with its unique character as a neighborhood restaurant in the mornings and a modern tavern in the evenings, is among the best-known restaurants in the world.

Karaköy, which has made its flavors known to the world, has also sealed its awards with Gault Millau Türkiye (1 Toque). With the effect of not keeping its flavors quiet, more and more foreign tourists accompany local tourists to Karaköy Lokantası every day. It transforms the seeds it receives from Anatolia with its own signature and leaves them to the palates of the world. Among the restaurant’s specialties are dishes like ‘Çıtır Mantı’ (crispy dumplings), ‘Kalamar Mücver’ (squid fritters), ‘Kuzu Sırtı Fileto’ (lamb fillet), ‘Karides Tava’ (shrimp fried), ‘Paçanga Böreği’ (Paçanga pastry), each reinterpreted with its unique style.
