A la Turca Restaurant Review

: A la Turca is a gem. Not a bright shiny one, but a simple space with exotic food. The best way to try its delights is to have the combo platter for two: hummus, baba ghanouj, eggplant salad, ezme (a walnut, tomato and pepper dip), a white bean salad and dolmas. For dinner, go for one of the lamb and beef shwarma or the lahmacun, A la Turca's version of a meat pizza without the heavy tomato sauce. Flatbread fans will enjoy Turkish pides, made with many different toppings including beef, potatoes and cheese. Take out only, no delivery.
