Adana Ocakbaşı – Best grill in town

Do you want to try a good kebab or any kind of meat? If you are not vegetarian, you have to try it. Imagine you came to Turkey 50 years ago. Can you imagine? No? So come to Adana Ocakbaşı and try the flavors.

First I want to explain the name. Ocakbaşı means fireside, so there is a Turkish grill in the middle of the place and if you want to sit near it, you can take the meat from the fire and eat within a few seconds. Adana is a city in southern Turkey and situated 30 km inland from the Mediterranean Sea. Adana is famous for their kebabs.

Eating in Istanbul is a mixture of other cities and cultures. Maybe you do not have enough time to go Adana or somewhere else, but you can easily taste their cuisine in Istanbul.

After a good sightseeing or after work like us, you’ll want to drink rakı accompanied with meat. The place has a maximum of 30 seats and it is better to make a reservation before you go. The place is getting more famous and there is no need to take a risk, just call and take a seat in their mezzanine.

If you like eating and drinking rakı like me – this costs 85 TL per person. I am sure that you will not forget this delicious night until you go there again. It’s all about the taste of meat.
