Divan Yolu 12, Istanbul, , Turkey

Since 1920, this workingman’s dive has remained hugely popular despite serving only two main dishes: meatballs and lamb skewers. Both are simple, but juicy and ultra-fresh due to the restaurant’s high turnover (the restaurant claims to serve 10 times more meatballs every day than their myriad local imitators). Accompanied by crusty white bread and a peasant salad of white beans, tomato, and cucumber, these are among the best meals you’ll find in the city.
