On a lovely fall day about thirty members of the Wolfe Pack met at The Turkish Kitchen for a feast of Mediterranean dishes.
It is no secret that Mr. Wolfe was widely acquainted with the cuisine of the Balkans. Raised in Montenegro and having visited Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, and Albania, Mr. Wolfe would undoubtedly been familiar with Turkish cuisine. In fact, in Death of a Dude, he and Woody Stepanian demonstrate their familiarity with the foods of the entire region.
The ancient Turks and later the Ottomans were canny incorporators of the best foods they found on their migrations or in far-flung regions of their empire. In the best Turkish restaurants, one will discover influences from Central Asia and Persia to Greek and Jewish in the authentic cuisine of Istanbul and the Anatolian provinces. Turkish Kitchen is one such restaurant.
Turkish Kitchen is noted for delicious and authentic Turkish foods. Their Sunday Brunch is a sight to behold, including a wide variety of Mezes (small Turkish appetizers), a large selection of breads, salads, egg dishes (including an omelette station), hot and cold entrees and a pleasing plethora of pulchritudinous pastries. In fact, there are so many delicious choices, it is hard to narrow down what to put on your plate during each visit back to the buffet!
