Istanbul’lu means “from Istanbul,” and when you come for brunch or dinner at this Somerville staple (located blocks away from Tufts), you’ll find what Zagat describes as “Turkish food made with fresh, flavorful ingredients.” Break away from traditional hummus and start with exotic offerings like Sigara Borek, a special dough that’s pan-fried and filled with feta cheese, parsley, and egg yolk. For the main event, feast on Istim Kebab, a dish of meltingly soft lamb shank that’s cooked with vegetables, wrapped with eggplant, topped with sliced tomatoes and peppers, and roasted to perfection. Typically prepared in Turkish homes, this traditional dish is reserved for special guests—and here at Istanbul’lu, you most certainly qualify.

Helmed by chef Huseyin Akgun, the kitchen of this Turkish kebab house rustles up fresh mezes, sharable small plates, and an all-day breakfast spread. Try traditional Black Sea-style laz pancakes, topped with honey, jam, and feta; or, let crispiness rule with the su borek, a phyllo-encased combo of mixed spices and cheese. Meanwhile, the izmir kofta, baked with tomato sauce, is killer.
