Karaköy Güllüoglu (Istanbul, Turkey)
Kemankeş Karamustafa Paşa Mh., Mumhane Cd. No:63, 34425 Beyoğlu/İstanbul, Turkey
Karaköy Güllüoglu is one of the most famous baklava places in Turkey, which ships around the world. It is an institution in Istanbul and most of the time quite busy. It sells a dazzling variety of types of baklava in all shapes and sizes.
I got a big piece of what seemed a pretty straightforward type. I think it was about 12₺ (or $2.50), quite pricey for Istanbul, but it was a big piece and it was definitely the best baklava I have ever had. It was moist but not too sweet.
Baklava at its best!
