Cakici Lokantasi Menemen: 40 year old tradition

One of the first thing I do whenever I visit a new town in Turkey or sometimes even abroad, I ask the locals for a place to dine, preferably older the better. These places are offering high(constant) quality of food and good conditions for health etc. as they are serving food many years people are coming back. You can find local tastes in such places in Turkey where we call these establishments as “Esnaf Lokantasi” the Artisan Restaurant.

Cakici Restaurant in Menemen founded in 1970s is serving lunch only and you should be over there between 11:00-14:00 if you want to find something to eat. Everything you can try will be tasty for sure, there are some classics mainly from beef or lamb, also the soups are great. White Beans and Chickpea dishes are offering best in class taste and can be ordered on top of rice dish (pilav).

Overall, Eatinizmir recommends Cakici Lokantasi in Menemen as by far the best lunch option in Menemen area if you happen to be there.

How to get there:

Address: Gaybi, 35660 Menemen Izmir
