Köfteci Hüseyin - Eating in Istanbul - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

This small local restaurant has been serving delicious grilled meatballs since 1958. It opens at around 11 am and closes when the meatballs are finished. The meatballs are especially tasty as they’re freshly prepared every day.

Why you should visit it

This restaurant was originally founded by a man named Mr. Hüseyin, but these days it’s managed by his sons. They only serve “köfte” (meatballs) and “piyaz” (a cold white bean salad that’s typically served with Turkish grilled meatballs).

Special tip

It gets very busy at lunchtime, so you may have to wait for a table.
