Galata Muhallebicisi

Teşvikiye Cd. No. 55 Imren Ap. Nişantaşı, Istanbul

Mon–Sat: 7.00–00.00 (midnight); Sun: 8.00–00.00

This is a great muhallebicisi (pudding shop) with a diverse, more interesting menu. Try the delicious lamb shish, one of their lovingly prepared pides (boat-shaped stuffed flat bread) – which is a specialty at this branch – with interesting fillings or a salad. The one with rocket, tulum peynir (goat’s milk cheese) and sliced oranges is very refreshing. There is a pleasant terrace at the back. And of course, the desserts impress.

The three other branches of this restaurant are housed in monstrous shopping malls, so this branch has the best atmosphere.

Zeynel is another popular muhallebicisi in the neighbourhood. For more Western-inspired light meals, head to The House Café on the same street or Cookshop a few streets away.
