Foremost a roast chicken spot, Lades (meaning wishbone) is famous for its menemen, an egg dish made with tomatoes and bell peppers. Not very easy on the eyes, this Turkish breakfast staple is delicious, hearty and is the sweetheart of all Turks no matter their demographic strata.
Don’t bring your date here, this is more for a group of friends looking to eat hard for breakfast. Great place when you pull an all nighter and in terms of price/value.
What to order: Order all the classic Turkish breakfast sides and definitely the bal-kaymak (honey and clotted cream) but leave room for the queen: a personal copper pot of menemen with your choice of cheese, dried meats or simply simple and delicious.
