Bestami - Safranbolu's best

Safranbolu has a few places to eat that offer quality local food.  Zencafil and Hanim Sultan are 2 worth trying but the absolute must visit restaurant is Bestami, near the metal-workers street.  If you arrive and find it completely empty, walk around the corner and down the hill and pop your head into the kitchen where you'll probably find the husband and wife owners rolling out some Manti.  This Manti, or tiny ravioli that is filled with spiced meat and served with yoghurt, dried mint and chili, is absolutely delicious and done just right at Bestami.  Their gozleme (or turkish filled pancake) is also good.  In fact, everything they do, is without flaw.
