Cafe Istanbul Restaurant Review: A uniquely Turkish and Anatolian restaurant in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Café Istanbul offers dishes meticulously prepared to the veritable standards of the Eastern Mediterranean regions. With a 25-year culinary background, chef-owner Erol Girgin only uses fresh ingredients---herbs, meat, poultry and seafood---to prepare flavor-filled dishes. Delicacies include baba ghanouj, rack of lamb, and islim kebap (lamb shank braised with tomatoes and onion, then topped with tenderly grilled eggplant). Café Istanbul also boasts lovely patio dining and a well-conceived wine and Champagne list.
