Cafe Istanbul…an Authentic Turkish Experience!A Taste of Turkey…right here at Easton!
If you haven’t had the pleasure of dining at Easton’s Cafe Istanbul, let me take you to the land of Turkish Cuisine!
You probably already know that Easton can take your dining experience around the world and satisfy many different cultural tastes. Cafe Istanbul located on the north end of the center not only serves up the savory flavors of Turkey but it makes you feel as if you’ve stepped into another part of the world!
Here’s the perfect opportunity for you to visit them and learn a little about Turkish Cuisine.
If you like eggplant, then you must get the Babganush! This is smoked eggplant puree flavored with tahini, olive oil and garlic – what’s not to like about this dish?!
I also really enjoy their Lentil Soup and Hummus...if you’re a fan of either, you’ll love theirs! I have not tried the Pinto Bean Salad yet but it sounds healthy & delish. It’s made with carrots, green peppers and diced potatoes seasoned with a light olive oil tomato sauce.
I love Lamb Chops so I can’t help but order these when I go there. However, I have had the Doner Kebab Plate which is marinated ground lamb and beef grilled traditional style on a vertical rotisserie and the Vegetable Stew with Lamb and I enjoyed them both.
Their Baklava is some of the best I’ve eaten and their Rice Pudding brings back memories of my grandmother’s version of this yummy dessert!
I’ve heard the Lamb Shank is a must try (on my list) and what’s a visit to a Turkish restaurant without having Stuffed Grape Leaves?! It’s unheard of so this is a must try if you want the full Turkish experience!
