Arka is a gem of an eatery, tucked away off of Dr. Alim Bey and Ataturk Street in central Bodrum. Partners Huseyin Peker and Huseyin Askin teamed up together, with one Huseyin bringing a Swiss pedigree in Italian cuisine to the venture, and the other Huseyin providing the local logistical day-to-day operations.
What makes Arka different? Well, the pizzas are true, genuine, Italian style pizzas on very thin dough, unlike the horrible recent trend of chain-style, yeast-ridden, plastic sponges drowning under an entire stale pantry's worth of processed toppings. My pizza was simply fresh tomato with garlic, just as ordered.
Another neat feature at Arka is the pasta presentation. Choose your noodle, and pair it up with your sauce. Arka are thinking outside of the box - Want Penne Alfredo? Fettuccine Arrabbiata? No problem.
The warm reception, efficient service, full comprehension of special requests, proper wine menu, cold beer glasses and a daily Turkish lunch menu are also notable. Visit them at www.arkabodrum.com
