The cuisine matches the setting of the restaurant, casual yet sophisticated. Chef Volkan’s interpretation of modern Turkish cuisine comes to life here with his use of strong tastes and bold pairings. Menu of Kasa consists of various meze (common name of cold and hot appetizers), an homage to the typical Turkish way of sharing food. Spinach root and leek medallions served with a scoop of smoked yoghurt and hummus with pastirma (pastrami) crumble all burst with flavors. Scrumptious beef ribs are served on firik risotto while local seabass is served on smoked eggplant mashed with mastic. Staple Turkish desert firin sutlac (baked rice pudding) and homemade trilece ensures finale is grand and memorable.Volkan combines beloved dishes from the city’s multi-cultural heritage in his dishes from start to finish. Albanian style liver, Circassian duck, mamzana (chargrilled eggplant) are among local favorites that play tribute to the rich culinary mosaic of Istanbul.
