Meşhur Bebek Badem Ezmesi is a family-run business that has been selling the purest and best form of sweets since 1904 at its current premises. The shop is famous for its badem ezmesi (the Turkish variant of marzipan that is slightly less sweet). In fact, the name of the shop means “the famous Bebek almond paste,” and people from all parts of the city come here just to buy the badem ezmesi, regardless of its whopping prices—Most customers would argue that it's worth every penny! Even though the shop is best known for its badem ezmesi, other items are excellent as well. The selection of sweets includes akide şekeri (a kind of Turkish hard candy), fıstık ezmesi (pistachio marzipan), lokum (Turkish delight), and dragées of various fillings (such as pistachio, almond, and orange).
