Basta Istanbul

Basta – Istanbul’s street food bar

Homely cooked wraps, from chicken to chorizo, to beef and if that’s not enough, even hamburgers. A corner that serves fast delicious wraps with side dishes. Order the humus or if you are really hungry go for the sharing plates. This offers you the fixed dishes along with some periodically revolving dishes.

The chefs Kaan and Derin are old friends who have sweated in Michelin star restaurants. Now it’s their turn to reflect the passion and the dream they have built between them. It’s a lovely cosy corner, not fancy but not as lame as street food as we know it. Creative wraps await you and believe me they are all delicious, right down to the core meaning of that word.

Do not forget to wash the delicious chunks down your tummy with Basta-made ayran (the yogurt drink), that’s a feast. The rates are at street food level, very affordable and reasonable. If you still have some space in that tummy of yours then definitely go for the desserts. I am already hungry!
