Previously named Kahta Cigkofte, but changed name in early 2014, same owner. Cigkofte is southern Turkish specialty. Traditionally prepared with raw meat, however usage of raw meat is forbidden since a decade. Cigkofte places like Kahta use ground walnut and almond instead of meat, together with bulgur and spices.

So having spent the last couple of weeks in Bulgaria, and seeing nothing but grilled vegetables after grilled vegetables after grilled vegetables, I was really excited to find some delicious Turkish food. And Kasikci Dede Cig Kofte (man, that's a mouthful) certainly satisfied that. They seem to make essentially one thing, which is their delicious nut-made-fake-meat-thing in a tortilla, with a bunch of vegetables and some sauces. It's awesome. Like, super super good. After having one, I couldn't resist a second. Spicy, tasty, with a bunch of rich flavors. Then they even give you a free little cup of tea afterwards. Apparently I was lucky enough to hit Monday's, when everything is half off, so each wrap was only 2 lira ($1), though I guess usually they're 4 lira ($2) a piece. Awesome little place (just a note, it's not right on the corner, it's just a little bit up the side street. Super tiny, it has like two tables)

Pros: Super Tasty, Ridiculously Cheap, Friendly Staff
Cons: Don't speak english

Had this for a light dinner and it was fabulous. Very cheap and the staff there was very nice although we could barely communicate. Definitely will be back again for another quick snack after a few drinks!
