In the cobbled streets of Asmalı, Cavit sits unassumingly among other meyhanes. Yet, its food is among the top five in the city. The service here is cheerful and attentive. A perfect meyhane experience with a focus on the taste, even if it’s become a bit of a popular spot in the last few years.
Definitely a winter spot, as it lacks outside seating, and has very narrow balcony space for smoking. Try to get the tables on the lower floor by the door for a calmer evening, or a table in the upper floor for a livelier one.
What to order: Go here for the mezes and the hot starters, most notably the tarama and the meatballs are sublime. The rest are all delicious as well, go with your own taste when picking the mezes from the display cabinet.
