Baylan’s Kup Griye

Written by Katie Parla on April 21, 2010

Walking through the door at Baylan, an old school pastry shop in Istanbul’s Kadıköy district, is like warping back in time to the 1970s, seemingly the last time they redecorated the place. The decor may be tired and worn, but you’ll hardly notice while downing spoonfuls of their signature dessert, the Kup Griye. It is a potpourri of ice cream, caramel sauce, finely ground pistachio, coarsely chopped almonds, crunchy bits of toffee and crème Chantilly. The 1970s were so bad were they?
