Galata House, Not So Cool »

1.0 Stars

Eating dinner in an old prison would much cooler if the food didn't resemble, well, prison food. Unfortunately there's nothing really Georgian on the menu. Galata House's Georgian chef is long gone for years now, leaving behind only the Georgian names of some pretty weak attempts at hinkali and other Georgian faves.
Beyoglu has much more to offer in the cool department.
Akin Balik is cool and cheap. Right down on the backside of the hardware market facing the Golden Horn. Check them out.

the best food you'll probably ever have in a jail »

you're probably wondering why you'd bother having Georgian food when Turkish food is pretty awesome as is. well, the Caucuses almost universally have shitty food, but Georgian is the one shining stand-out - since you're not going to find much Georgian in the U.S., might as well try it when you can, right? and this place doesn't disappoint. not to mention the fact that you are eating in an old British jail. that in itself is kind of cool.
