Cook the Book Kate Williams 5 comments

Lahmacun are Turkish flatbreads rolled up around a tomatoey lamb mixture, sprinkled with pepper flakes and topped with a spritz of lemon juice. They're a cousin of larger, milder pides, most often known as Turkish pizzas. More

This smooth, frothy drink is made with whole milk that's thickened with starch, sweetened with sugar, and flavored with rosewater or orange blossom water, cinnamon and, sometimes, a dusting of ground pistachios. It's sold by street vendors all over Istanbul, but now you can make it at home. More

Video: Turkish Mezze

Daniel Klein 2 comments

Go to many traditional Turkish restaurants in Istanbul, and your meal will begin when a waiter parks his double decker cart next to your table, full of delicious mezze dishes for you to choose from: Feta, braised beans, hummus, grilled octopus salad, grain salads, hummus...we can't think of a better way to start a meal.

New York Max Falkowitz 5 comments

A quick glance at the pubs that line Queens Boulevard in Sunnyside may have you thinking that the neighborhood is solely Irish territory. But there's some great Middle Eastern food if you know where to look. More

Turkish Kebabs and Salads at Mangal Kebab

New York Max Falkowitz Post a comment

Your typical New York Turkish restaurant is a nice-ish affair: smartly dressed waiters and white tablecloths, coursed meals, [middling] wine lists. But there are plenty of mom and pop shops that offer food which is just as good if not better, sometimes for as little as half the price, depending on how much atmosphere you're willing to sacrifice. Mangal Kebab in Sunnyside is one of them. More

Standout Turkish Mezze at Grill 43

New York Max Falkowitz 3 comments

None of the grilled meat at Grill 43 wows me, but their cold salads and dips ($4 to $5 each) are worth a visit all on their own. A plate of four will run you $13.95 which, with endless refills of warm, crusty bread, makes a worthy light lunch for two (or a piggish meal for one). More

The Lamb's the Thing at Taci's Beyti, Brooklyn

New York Max Falkowitz 5 comments

The hunt for New York's best Turkish food has taken me to unexpected places. Midtown East. Sunnyside. And now Gravesend, to Taci's Beyti, a well-regarded Brooklyn restaurant that some call the finest Turkish cooking in the borough. Eggplant is worth an order here. But it's the lamb that wins the day.

A Sandwich a Day: Iskender at 7 Spices

New York Max Falkowitz 1 comment

Don't look for the Iskender Plate ($14.50 to go, $16.95 to stay) near the other Turkish sandwiches at 7 Spices in the East Village. You won't find it there because it technically isn't a sandwich—that is, until you DIY it into one. More
