- What’s On
Established by a Bosnian family in 1925 and now in its third generation, this chain is arguably Istanbul’s best muhallebici (pudding shop) – besides breakfasts, sandwiches, salads and the classic chicken and rice, as the name suggests it has a large selection of desserts. The kazandibi (chicken-breast pudding), and su muhallebisi, served with rose water, icing sugar and ice cream (dondurma), are recommended. It has a small alcove at the entrance with outdoor seating across Akkavak Sokağı from the park. This is the inner heart of Nişantaşı, and as a source of between-meal treats it very slightly made up for the demise of the Görgülü Pastanesi, another classic.
Galata Muhallebicisi is another popular muhallebicisi in the neighbourhood.
