Lale Tripe Restaurant

Lale tripe restaurant was established by Hüseyin Özer in Beyoğlu, Büyükparmakkapı Sokak in 1960. In those years tripe restaurants were quite frugal places. Mr. Hüseyin Özer wanted tostart the Tulip Era by opening a classy venue and named the restaurant ‘Lale’ (tulip). In 1966, Baki Akkaya took over the restaurant. His son Vedat Akkaya was married to Hüseyin Özer’s cousin, Osman Özer’s daughter. Back then, people coming out of nightclubs in Beyoğlu would end their night here. In fact it was here that the comedian, ‘Honeybee’ Yalçın proposed to his wife, Lale Belkıs. Lale İşkembecisi is now located on Tarlabaşı Boulevard, in a 300 year-old building restored to its original state. The secret of Lale Tripe Restaurant’s success is hygiene. Mr. Akkaya says he is a ‘hygiene freak’. They on no account clean the tripe with caustic, but always rub it with a knife under hot water.
