If your from Texas and you’re feeling a bit home-sick while vacationing in Istanbul, Red River may not help you to feel back at home. For the rest of us weary travelers who need a break from the wailing of street vendors, incessant mind bashing sounding of car horns, and the crowded tourist attractions, this pub-restaurant offers a welcome escape.
Great! An American style bar, maybe I can get something to drink other then Turkish beer… sorry, no luck. Efes is on tap. Though if you consider yourself a whiskey cowboy there is plenty of that brown-gold liquid to imbibe.
The newly redesigned menu offers a smattering of world cuisine like fajitas, samosas, and pastas, as well as the standard Turkish fare; dürüms (wraps), and manti ) Turkish ravioli.
They serve real coffee as well, fresh roasted and ground.
Convenient location on the tram line street puts this oasis just 5 minutes walk from Aya Sofia Mosque and Sultanahmet. Enjoy the classic rock tunes on the radio and classic western movie posters on the wall.
