Köfteci Ali Baba

Arnavutköy Mah., Arnavutköy Bebek Caddesi No. 69, Beşiktaş, Istanbul

Excellent köfte in Arnavutköy. All that joins it on the menu is the soup of the day, bean salad (piyaz), and for dessert, irmik helvası (semolina dessert) and kemalpaşa (kind of sweet cheese balls from Bursa).

In Cornucopia 22, Berrin Torolsan gives her recipes for the beloved Turkish meatball in ‘Meatball Wizard’.
