{Restaurant} Halil Lahmacun

Halil Lahmacun is a classic restaurant in the busy district of Kadiköy on the Asian side of Istanbul. They serve delicious lahmacun but also offer great alternative for vegetarians, the white cheese pide.

When you enter Halil Lahmacun you step in the middle of the kitchen. You can see the chefs prepare the lahmacun and pide from scratch by the big wood fired oven.

You can either sit outside or in the small seating area upstairs. The choice of food is rather limited but therefore really delicious. They are specialized in lahmacun, a flatbread topped with a mixtures from minced meat, tomato paste and spices. The other baked good you can order is peynirli pide, a flat bread topped with a white cheese herb mixture. The dough is really thin and crispy, while the cheese is nice and gooey.

The prices are affordable, the lahmacun and pide cost 7 Lira each. I can recommend ordering at least two if you are hungry.
