Palegg offers decadent sandwiches with Nordic bread and Asian-inspired meats and sauces. The tower that is the fried chicken sandwich is more than enough for one person. As a beverage the anise-infused orange juice was a delightful invention on their side over the summer.
Context: Yeldeğirmeni, the neighbourhood Palegg is in, has been the final frontier of the gentrification of Kadıköy but with softer, more culturally sensible changes. Immigrants, low-income expats, artists and hippies have chosen the neighbourhood to live. Businesses that seem out of place like Palegg are hence the answer to a demand for novelty.
