Döner on the Side of Caution


We’ve previously sung the praises of Kasap Osman [2], a standby döner spot in the increasingly touristed Sirkeci neighborhood, but we’ve been getting unsettling reports from reliable sources that things might be slipping over there. We’ll go to Osman’s to check things out ourselves, but for now we suggest diners approach the spot with lowered expectations. Better yet, check out this recent review [3] as well as the recommendations in this archived roundup [4] of classic döner joints, written for us by Atilla Kapar, author of the blog Türkiye ve Dünyadan Lezzetler [5] (“Good Tastes from Turkey and the World”) and a Turkish food enthusiast who, as he describes it, “reviews lesser-known restaurants in Istanbul that offer great-tasting food.”
