The Famous Meatball House Hacı Metin Merkezefendi/Istanbul
There are many meatball houses in Istanbul but in terms of history and flavor the famous meatball house Hacı Metin located in Merkezefendi is something different. Located on a narrow street in between the cemeteries, the Hacı Metin Meatball House has been serving for years at their 2-floor place since the year 1962.
On the same street there is another Historical Merkezefendi Meatball House but the meatballs there are not as delicious as those of the Famous Hacı Metin Merkezefendi Meatball House. You may not find any seats at lunch times. In particular, sitting at the tables in front the front door in the summer makes you feel like you are somewhere outside of Istanbul.
The famous meatballs, bean salad and buttermilk ice they serve in Copper cups are really incredibly delicious.
The friendly approach of the persons serving at the place makes you feel pleasured and the prices vary between 9-10 TL. If you really want to taste a historical meatball, you must visit this place at the soonest time as it is under the danger of being collapsed due to urban transformation to be realized in the forthcoming period. The owners of the place serving for a period over 50 years are in search of a new place due to this danger of being collapsed.
