Advice: Go with a friend or order a couple of dishes so that you are served the larger Lavash bread.
On a hunt for authentic Turkish cuisine, I headed out to Burnaby on a mission after hearing great things. Happily discovered a family run gem serving traditional Turkish dishes in a very homey atmosphere. With each of our dishes, Lavash bread was included, normally if dining alone you get a small bread, if 2 people are dining together they serve a large Lavash, this is Turkish bread. We chose the Whole Wheat Lavash which arrived to the table hot and puffy served with tzatziki.
I had the delicious Chicken Shisha ($11.95) Grilled Chicken Breast Chunks served with salad, rice & yogurt sauce, my friend Gerry had the Adana Kabob ($11.95) Freshly Ground Beef grilled skewer w/yogurt rice & salad.
They have many different dishes from pide’s to kebabs and even pizzas, you will also find a limited offering of traditional Turkish desserts. Since I wrestled with ordering the dish that I did vs the Cheese Lovers Pide, I know what I will be having on my next visit!
