There are some foods that you never really knew you missed being in China until you see them in front of you. For those who love Greek and Turkish-style food, Nanjing’s Istanbul Cafe should be on your list to try. Again on the heavily traveled Shanghai Lu, Istanbul Cafe offers a great variety of food. Even though the restaurant is relatively new to the city, their menu and kitchen makes this a stand-out restaurant in Nanjing. After an afternoon or evening at Istanbul Cafe, you’ll remember just how much you missed hummus and proper wraps. You may even find a new love in the Turkish style pizzas. After some great food and Turkish tea give the restaurant’s great hookah selection a try. An important note: they don’t serve alcohol, but they are OK with guests bringing their own. If you’re looking for a new favorite lunch spot or to get your fix for hummus and wraps in Nanjing, Istanbul Cafe is your place.
