A visit to Urla and having a meal at Yengec (means "Crab" in Turkish) was one of the top items of our ToDo list for Izmir... We took the bus no 725 from Izmir to Urla. After having seen the Urla Center and "Iskele" Art Street, we directly went to Urla pier and easily found Yengec. Although we had not made a reservation they helped us to have lunch at the outside. We ordered Fish Roe, Fish Liver, Calamary stuffed with obergine as appetizers and steamed Scorpionfish stew as main dish. We also followed their advice and ordered a white Urla Wine, Sauvignon Blanc which was quite good. (The bill was 350 Turkish Liras) Thanks a lot Ilhan Bey, thanks a lot YENGEC team!
Tips: 1) Never go there without reservation. We did so and became able to sit because we told them that we were close friends of Mr. Ozdil, who is one of their permanent clients and a recent Urla citizen! This is one of the traditional "alla Turca" ways of problem solving here in this country! Anyway, we had to finish our meal within 2 hrs. and felt like a cat on hot bricks as the guest who reserved our table was on the way!
2) Later on we realized that there are other "Yengec" restaurants in Izmir but the owner of Urla Yengec says that they have no any brunch. (See their website page: "about" ).
