Located just across a busy intersection from another authentic Korean restaurant, Seorabeol, Çam Sut Mangal Restaurant’s unassuming facade hides a big personality that starts with the banchan. Many say a Korean restaurant can be judged solely on the quality of these small seasonal appetizers that arrive gratis at every table, and Çam Sut’s offerings boded well. The spread included three different kinds of homemade kimchi (cabbage, white radish and green onion) plus little bean sprouts just slicked in sesame oil, fresh greens, a blushing pink bowl of pickled watermelon radish in cold soup to cleanse the palate, and more.

On the menu, you’ll find many of the usual barbeque grill suspects - all done well - plus a few interesting specialties. Most brash is the Korean fried chicken, where nuggets of white and dark meat are twice fried and then tossed in a sweet and spicy, bright-red sauce. Though not the traditional chicken wings you’ll find in South Korea, it is the best rendition we’ve come across in Istanbul and will return time and again when the cravings hit. More subtle was silky vegetable and tofu stew, the broth redolent with umami-rich miso that fortified the stomach and soul. Add in an above-par bibimbap (the original, perfect Buddha bowl), filled with vegetables and in a stone pot so hot, the rice crisps on the bottom, and you have a meal that lifts the spirit. No wonder so many Korean expats directed us here - the food has true Seoul.
