Anatolia Turkish Restaurant

Beef Lahmacun, Anatolia

Anatolia Turkish Restaurant is one of the better known Turkish restaurants in town. They’ve been around for eons at Far East Plaza. Back in my school days, I used to visit them for their Turkish ice-cream – the good ‘ol ones where the ice-cream server will tease and taunt you before giving you the ice-cream. These days I crave meats…so I tend to order their shish kebabs or lahmacuns instead.  Lahmacun is simply known as Turkish pizza. It is often sprinkled with lemon juice, and then served rolled up with pickles and other vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, and onions. This thin-crust version you see above is Anatolia’s Beef Lahmacun ($3.50) [***.] with minced beef, tomatoes, onions, cabbage and peppers. I like how the zesty lemon balances the strong taste of beef, and the vegetables, making this a very light meal.

Beef Doner Sandwich, Anatolia

Created to suit German taste buds by the Turkish, Doner kebab are typically served as sandwiches in a small pide (Turkish pita bread) accompanied by salad greens. Anatolia’s Beef Doner Sandwich ($7.50) [***] is pictured above in a wrapper. I found the pide too dry for my liking. Perhaps it lacked more sauce to go with the sandwich. The doner kebab itself was satisfactory. Personally, I prefer Sultan Kebab’s meats. There’s something about the way Anatolia’s meats are grilled that doesn’t quite match up to Sultan Kebab’s. I guess you’ll have to try it for yourself to tell the difference. If you’ve got space, you should try Anatolia’s Iskender kebabs – which consists of grilled lamb drizzled with tomato sauce, over pieces of pide bread, and slathered with yoghurt.
