Istanbul Gourmet

Istanbul GourmetIstanbul Gourmet at East Point Mall was recommended by my friend D a while ago so I decided to pop by with her yesterday to check it out. It was a tiny place with counter seating on the inside, and about 4 tables outside. Their menu was pasted on their glass door, alongside some newspaper cuttings about their chef – who was previously from Hyatt Hotel. After glimpsing through the articles, I raised my expectations a notch. I settled for their signature Chicken Roll ($7.50) after catching a whiff of chicken on the grill.

Chicken RollThe portion turned out to be bigger than expected but I wasn’t complaining. I was pleased with how healthy my meal looked. There was chicken fillet stuffed with carrots and leek, topped with what appeared to be (and tasted like) tomato sauce. The sides consist of roasted potatoes with skin (yums), and a refreshing salad of shredded lettuce, cucumber cubes, diced tomatoes, celery, kidney beans and chickpeas drizzled with salad dressing.

The meat was tender and smooth, and wasn’t oily. The close-up here shows the individual pieces of the chicken roll. The leek wasn’t overpowering, and the salad went really well with the meat.

Unfortunately, I was a little full from brunch, so we didn’t order more. I’m keen to try their Beef Bomb ($8) and kebabs ($3.50-$4.50) which looked really appetising. Well, there’s always next time!

I give the chicken roll [****]!
