First (?) Report:
Food is good.
“Adana Kebab” lamb minced meat skewer, 360NT: I would have liked it a bit softer/juicier, but the taste was very good, nicely spiced. The sides seem quite little, but good. Smallest portion of ketchup I’ve seen in my life, but hey, the menu photo shows it like that.
“Kiymali peynirli pide” lamb minced meat pide with cheese, 300NT: fit my taste well, quite strong flavor, good.
“Ayran” buttermilk drink, 80NT: very good, refreshing, nice presentation in a metal cup
“Turk cayi” Turkish black tea, 50NT: nothing extraordinary, good, small (as shown in the menu)
“Salata” tomato & cucumber salad, 100NT: good, but smallish portion. Maybe could have been a side on a main dish.
“Sutlac” rice pudding, 100NT: and we have a winner! Best version I’ve had so far, exactly fits my taste. Aromatic, rice not too mushy, not too sweet.
Additionally to the menu items you can find on Google maps, they have some Turkish soft drink and some IIRC non-turkish beer.
Not being Turkish I’m not an authority on the authenticity. But I’ve lived a few years in the middle of what I guess is one of the biggest community of Turks outside of turkey: Mannheim. I would say it’s quite similar, but of course by far not the awesome CP value. But then, we are 9000km away from that Turkish good heaven.
I also like what the owners did to that place, nicely and accurately renovated what must have been a proper shithole before. Unfortunately there is no real sink for guests to wash hands, hope they get that figured out.
