Located in the back street of the hardware-store-centric Tersane Caddesi is a sign that leads the way to Mutfak Dili, a small but worthy restaurant. The home-cooked Turkish meals are prepared by the skilled and loving hands of Hayguhi Hanım and range from the simple salçalı köfte (Turkish meatballs with herbs and spices topped with a tomato paste sauce) to the patlican oturtma (eggplant and ground meat casserole with peppers, onions, tomatoes, and garlic). For dessert, the sakızlı muhallebi (milk pudding with mastic) and cevizli bülbül yuvası (bird-nest-shaped pastry with walnuts and syrup) add a sweet ending to a satiating meal. The menu changes everyday according to seasonal ingredients and can be found at the restaurant's website. On special occasions, such as Easter, Hayguhi Hanım prepares Armenian dishes such as topik (dish with crushed sesame seeds, chickpeas, potatoes, onions and spices), made to order.
