Layover in Istanbul - Chora Museum/Asitane for lunch?

we had a great couple of days in istanbul this winter and are very excited to be going back for a day (in transit to elsewhere).

we have plenty of time but are not at all looking to pack a bunch of things in - we didnt get to the chora museum last time, and a friend suggested we check out the ottoman food at Asitane as part of our stop.

reviews/pictures/their website certainly have us interested - is there a specific dish or type of dish that we should most definitely get or avoid? (i recognize that their menu seems to change seasonally and over time, but general ordering guidance would be great)
