Quick Bite: Pulled Pork Sandwich @ Unter

Look at this photo.


Really look at it.

That, dear reader, is a pulled pork sandwich at Unter gastropub in the hip Tophane neighborhood.

It’s a goddamn miracle.

It has sweet, caramelized onions and toasted, herby, artisanal bread. The pulled pork, a rarity in Istanbul, is tender, juicy, and seasoned so perfectly, you’ll think you’re at a gastropub in Austin, Texas, not Tophane, Istanbul.

You will eat this sandwich. You will eat and you will thank me for telling you about.

Go. Now.

To get to Unter, take the Bağcılar-Kabataş tramway to Tophane. Walking towards Karaköy and the Bosporous, find Necatibey street three blocks to Karaali Kaptan street. Turn left. Unter is on the northeast corner of a grape vine-draped intersection.
