It's a fair trek up to the Bosphorus village of Emirgan, but a worthwhile journey on many counts. A 30-minute (traffic-contingent) cab ride from the city center, Emirgan is a leafy whistle-stop set on the water, home to the debonair Sakıp Sabancı Museum, which itself is the namesake former residence of one of Istanbul's most affluent businessmen. The museum earned a name in the last couple of years with two moderately well-executed retrospectives (Picasso and Rodin), as well as the opening of Müzedechanga, a spin-off of the once-legendary Changa restaurant in Taksim that has recently swirled down the culinary plug hole. This is much more than a museum café: Winner of Wallpaper magazine's 2007 award for best-designed restaurant (in the world!), the glass-enshrouded venue, conceived by architect Ayşen Savaş and designed by the local Autoban group, serves up a concise but delicious menu of international dishes coordinated by Kiwi chef Peter Gordon, such as deep-fried zucchini flowers stuffed with the special Turkish lor cheese, and cinnamon-scented lamb with eggplant. Highly recommended for a sunny day out.
