We went here with some friends this past weekend. It’s nice inside and feels warm and welcoming. Not sure if this is a family run place but it seems like it could be.
We shared the sigara borek (one of my favorites-- they have this at Melike in Ossining too), the zucchini pancakes smothered in a delicious yogurt sauce, and a beet hummus that we all wished had more beets in it. Each of us had a different lamb dish. Our friends liked the lamb gyro meat (well seasoned and tender, they said) while my husband’s lamb hummus (kebob meat on top of hummus) was the winner between the two of us. The kofte I had were well seasoned but the meat was a bit gristly. Each entree came with a rice medley and a vinegary mixed salad featuring a variety of fresh vegetables. The price point for most entrees is in the mid $20s but we all took leftovers home-- they aren’t skimping on portion size.
Dessert was knofeh (kanafeh, knafeh, konofe, don’t know how to spell this) which is another personal favorite of mine-- this was a bit sweeter than the rendition at Melike but that didn’t stop us from inhaling the whole plate of it, baked up fresh for us.
We were left to linger for a while, chatting with our friends, and, in European style, I don’t think they’d have given us the check if we hadn’t asked.
We’ll be back for sure.
Has anyone else been here?
