Boncuk is well-known on Nevizade for its superb Armenian specialties. Waiters happily cart heavy trayfuls of eastern Mediterranean bounty to eagerly-waiting patrons. The dışhes of choice include Topik (a cinnamony Armenian pâté made from chickpeas, tahini and potatoes) and Kislik (bulgur wheat patties flavored with pomegranate). The standard Türkish fare of white cheese, olives, anchovies and prawns is also good. Hot mezes often consist of fish balls, buttery slices of sautéed liver and gorgeous sigara börek oozing with cheese. Main dışhes include sensational schnapper kebabs, delicious fillets of baked bonito, or sea bass (when it's in season).
