Local haunt

More than 25 years ago, the Tufan brothers took over this shop from its original Greek owner. Damla is still one of the best places in Istanbul to enjoy ice cream flavored with pine-scented mastic, a resin harvested from trees on Chios Island. The shop’s classic fruit flavors—lemon, strawberry, and sour cherry—also draws a long line in warm weather.
