Michelin starred successful Turkish chef Fatih Tutak was awarded the 66th place in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list with his chef-restaurant TURK Fatih Tutak.
After earning a stellar reputation at The Dining Room at The House on Sathorn in Bangkok, chef Fatih Tutak returned to his native Istanbul to launch his signature restaurant, which has quickly won accolades since opening in 2019. A love letter to Turkish cuisine and produce, Turk Fatih Tutak offers a single tasting menu of micro-seasonal dishes using ingredients preserved through pickles, misos and garums. Highlights include egg with morels and Thrace cheese, and lamb curry with potatoes and buffalo yoghurt. The setting is as well-thought-out as the food, with a strong Turkish ethos throughout the warm, wood-filled dining room with back-lit glass cabinets filled with colourful pickles and preserves.
The 21st edition of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, will be announced on 20th June 2023 in Valencia. Tune in to the livestream of the awards ceremony on YouTube or Facebook from 20:40 local time.
