Hayvore, which specializes in dishes from Turkey's Black Sea coast, sits just off the pedestrian thoroughfare Istiklal Caddesi. You’ll recognize a strong American Southern inspiration: corn bread, sturdy leafy greens (collard-green-like “black cabbage” shines in a chunky soup with borlotti beans and dried corn), and cornmeal-crusted fried fish. Hayvore's kuru fasulye—Turkey's national dish of dried white beans slowly stewed in tomato sauce—is among Istanbul's best versions. Don't miss dessert, whether it’s a caramelized pumpkin garnished with walnuts or the laz boregi, a pastry-wrapped milk pudding studded with Black Sea hazelnuts that’s doused in syrup.
