We Ditched the Apps and Found the Best Restaurant in Istanbul

by Jan Schroder
Recep Çok and Mike Schroder at Sura Restaurant in Istanbul

Standing in the streets of Old Town Istanbul, my brother Mike and I peered at apps on our phones, unable to locate the #1-rated restaurant. Having been approached by hawkers all week, we initially ignored the gentleman offering help.

Recep Cok is an Istanbul native, married to a Charleston woman, and owner of a tribal artifact collection in a stunning seven-story walkup. He explained TripAdvisor may be reliable in America, but not Turkey. He joined us and steered us to an amazing dinner at Sura Restaurant. Following a private tour of his home, we exchanged cards, promising to reconnect soon.
