Turkish Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Dazzlingly painted in red, gold, blue and violet and decorated with lavish kilim rugs and brass objects, Turkish Kitchen is a sensuous setting for an exotic dining experience. An entire meal could be made just from the starters (such as the grilled eggplant salad) and a crusty loaf of the oversize sesame flatbread called pide. The sigara boregi, pan-fried cigar-shaped rolls of phyllo stuffed with feta cheese, are cooked until they're crisp and golden. Main courses include char-grilled striped bass and brook trout, calamari, baby lamb chops, stuffed cabbage, kebabs of lamb and chicken, baked lamb shank wrapped with eggplant slices and served with rice, poached beef dumplings served with a garlic yogurt sauce, and tilapia filet baked with butter, white wine, peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes. Also worth trying is the chicken stuffed with green peppers, tomatoes and cheese. A side of homemade yogurt will help ease the garlic and pepper overload. Try one of the tart Turkish Kavaklidere wines with dinner, and the thick Turkish coffee with a dessert of honey-drenched baklava.
