Sweet Success

Vanessa H. Larson,

The best place in Istanbul to buy marzipan is, without a doubt, Meşhur Bebek Badem Ezmesi, a family-owned confectioner that has been making and selling the delicacy in the waterfront neighbourhood of Bebek since 1904. There are no fancy shapes or colours on offer, just delicious marzipan that is still made by hand, without any additives, and sold by weight from an old-fashioned wooden counter. The shop also sells pistachio marzipan, Turkish delight, nuts and chocolates.

Meşhur Bebek Badem Ezmesi, Cevdet Paşa Caddesi 53C, Bebek, +90 (0)212 263 5984
