  1. Cappadocia Turkish Kebap House


Having spent the last three years in Turkey, I was so excited to find a restaurant in Busan serving Turkish food. The hummus and bread were nice starts to our meal. The apple tea was delightful. My favorite Turkish food, Iskender Kebab, was not available so I tried something else. It was tasty (don’t remember the name).

The restaurant is easy to get to on the Metro, Line 1 (the red line if looking on a Metro map); get off at Dusil and leave the station at exit 8. Walk straight ahead a couple blocks. A small stream will be behind storefront buildings on your right, with apartments on the other side of the stream. Turn right at the tire shop (gas station across the street on the left). As you turn the corner and cross the little stream, you will see the single minuret of the mosque which is next to the Turkish restaurant. After maybe 1.5 short blocks, the restaurant will be on the right. Enjoy!
