There are so many reasons to go to a restaurant. Sometimes we go because we like the view, sometimes we go because we like the atmosphere, or the food, or all at the same time.
For Adana Ocakbaşı in Kurtuluş, the reason is the meat.
It’s a small venue, with simple tables and chairs, and no décor to speak of. It’s been around since 1978 and perhaps not much has changed since then. Yet these are part of what make Adana Ocakbaşı unique. It is what it is; no pretenses, no masks. It doesn’t try to be anything other than what it is: a glorious neighborhood ocakbaşı with delicious meat and a down-to-earth atmosphere.
The menu is concentrated on meat; the kebabs include urfa, adana, çöp şiş, kuzu şiş and sakatat varieties are uykuluk, böbrek, ciğer and yürek. Mezes are quite limited in scope but include salads, a couple of eggplant options, ezme, and cheese.
