OK – we did not try EVERY kebab house in Istanbul – I am not sure that is even possible. We did try many and the Adil Kebap in Uskudar wins our vote, hands down.
While you are waiting for your main dish you are given a very tasty tomato, cucumber, pepper and chili salad and a yogurt sauce with a basket of fresh bread.
They serve a variety of daily made soups including the lentil, tomato, tripe and chicken, all classic Turkish recipes.
We ordered the mixed kebab which is a large portion of lamb, chicken and beef kebap cooked to perfection in an open fire oven. The meat is served with a soft white rice, roasted tomato and peppers and topped with fresh baked flat bread. One order was more than enough food for both of us (we learned this our first visit to Adil Kebap and knew better for our second round).
After you have enjoyed a wonderful and tasty meal, you are served the traditional Turkish tea and are invited to sit as long as you like. All of this along with a soft drink for less than $10.00. Not a bad deal.
If you find yourself in Istanbul, on the Asia side in Uskudar, be sure to visit Adil Kebap a few minute walk from the ferry terminal at the entrance to the Fish Market.
Your taste buds will thank you.
