Turkish Delights

Turkish Kitchen on Albany Highway in Victoria Park makes absolutely delicious bread in their wood fire oven.

What better way to eat fresh bread than to mop up a mixture of lamb, cheese and tomatoes on a sizzling hot plate with it. That’s exactly what we did. We also had some meat lovers’ pizza with a touch of BBQ sauce… we love the use of Turkish bread as a base; crisp on the outside and pillowy on the inside!

It’s a no fuss environment.

There’s not much in the way of décor. There’s a slightly broken TV, but we find ourselves spending much of our time just watching the big men behind the counter and their nanna churn out plate after plate of steaming food.

Turkish, Iranian, Bosnian…. And that’s just types of bread on offer.

The clientele is like United Nations passing through.

There is a musollah behind the café which also does Friday prayers.

If dining in is not your thing, takeaway kebab with extra bread seems to be popular.

Contrary to the title of this post, sweets are not their forte. But their bread is another type of Turkish delight altogether.
