Datli Maya Is Run By Dilara Erbay In Istanbul Turkiye

Dilara Erbay is one of Istanbul’s top cooks and shepherds her crew at Datli Maya in Istanbul’s Cihangir neighborhood with aplomb.

February 10th 2012 found me trudging up and down the mountainous streets of Istanbul’s European side looking for Ms. Erbay’s tiny cafe. Once inside an orgy of food came tumbling forth from the tiny kitchen. Erbay is one of the leaders of Turkiye’s slowfood movement and has cultivated dozens of relationships with the regions farmers so that she can source the finest meats and vegetables.
