It's simply because the owner nick name was Pancho when he was a football player
and now he is the Owner of this restaurant which was build on the Golden river ( altindere )

Ataturk Alani was lined with similar establishments, but I chose this place because it looked clean, and there were families eating here, and I needed to 'escape' from the 'hassling Trabzon men' (see my introduction to Trabzon)
This was 1993, and the place warranted a mention in the 1990 LP guide, it doesn't feature in the 2005 guide, so either it is no longer here, it's under a different name, it's closed, or it's grim!
Initially, I didn't get a good welcome, single female, dyed red hair!! but once they realised I wasn't 'a Natasha', I was very well looked after. In fact, the staff became very protective towards me, especially when I returned the next night.
Favorite Dish: Pide, hot and tasty!
This establishment was opposite my hotel (Erzerum Oteli) and I wanted to visit it since reading about it in my LP guide.(1990 edtn) The blurb read- ' You can get a good breakfast and, later in the day, excellent pastries and puddings. The place has nice touches, such as embroidered Turkish cloth on the glass topped tables. The proprietor Mr Gunduz Akay, can also lead you on a trek to Camlihemsin in the Kackar mountains where there are hot springs, lots of wildlife and beautiful mountain scenery. Gunduz Bey speaks German and Turkish'
Well, I met the proprietor, a nice humble man, who was very proud to have been featured in LP, he had a folder of cuttings/letters etc. I spent quite a while here chatting. I'm afraid I didn't have the time to go on one of his treks.
This place isn't mentioned in the 2005 guide, so it may no longer exist, but if You're in Trabzon I'd try and find out!
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed a coffee and pastry as well as a cold rice pudding, then purchased some sweets and chocolates.
Hoca means teacher or Professor ...Fevzi Hoca is really a seafood professor and he is also the athor of a book consisting about the" black sea fishes"..
He was an old teacher that he decide to be the best cook in the seafood
please dont forget that the Blacksea is the less salty sea of the world thats why the fishes of the black sea are considered the best of the world

Usta means Master and the Cemil master restaurant is in Akcakoca sea shore 8 km far from Trabzon and they serve meat and fish at the same time
Favorite Dish: If you visit this place between jan-may you have to try fishes
and you can try always meatballs which is very famous for this area
Just off Ataturk Alani, on Uzak Sokagi, is the Cardak Pide Salonu, which serves the best pideler you can imagine (Pide is the Turkish version of pizza, either with cheese or meat). On Ataturk Alani, there are several kebab places to eat, all of them very similar, and the roads off this square are also full of restaurants, including the fantastically named 'Kebabistan'!
In this trip I ve had the chance to visit again Fevzi Hoca
but this time on his new restaurant in Akcakoca
the fishes are excellent as usual
autumn is the best season of sea food
