Best Adana Kebab Restaurants in the European Side of Istanbul

The first flavor that comes to mind when the city of Adana is mentioned is undoubtedly Adana Kebab. It is such a flavor that it welcomes you with its smell and enchants you even before you arrive at the place. Especially if it accompanies sumac onions, “Tablaci Salad,” “open handmade ayran,” or “Adana Salam – Turnip Juice.” You want to watch the table like a painting.

The quality of the meat used in Adana kebab and the hand of the master determines the flavor of the kebab. Of course, this unique flavor is delicious in its place, but for those who can’t go to Adana, there are Adana kebab restaurants in Istanbul that serve Adana kebab just the way they make in the city of Adana.

Here are the best Adana kebab places on the European side of Istanbul that bring Adana to your doorstep.
