Borsam Taşfırın

Güneşli Bahçe Sokak No. 32, Kadıköy, Istanbul

Daily: 11.30–21.00

For some of the best lahmacun in the city, head to this casual cafe in Kadıköy’s centre. Inexpensive and fast, you get your lahmacun, add parsley and lemon from the big plastic tubs on the tables, roll it up and wash down with ayran (yoghurt drink). There couldn’t be a tastier, more no-fuss lunch. Comes highly recommended by our friends at Istanbul Eats as well.

There are two other branches on Serasker Caddesi and off Rıhtım Caddesi just near the port.
