Mustafa Gungar, who worked 22 years in Singapore's Turkish embassy as the personal chef to eight ambassadors, just started this cafe with fellow chef Ismail Karasacli. Try the simple but tasty hummus with freshly baked pita bread and mixed kebabs.

Turkish Delight in Fusionopolis

Since we have no knowledge on Turkish cuisine, we try to look at the photos on the menu and even used our smart phone to google on the names. No joke! But though we are supposed to have brunch here, we did not order any items listed under their 'Brunch' section. There are only three items listed (with photos) - Peynirli Borek, Pide Bread - Ekmek and Butter Rice. The portion looks small for the three of us, hence we decided to take a look at the main course and appetizer instead.

Doner Kebab Chicken ($8.00) is a simple wrap with lots of vegetables and tasty roasted chicken. It is a simple yet filling dish. Pretty good.

Pide with Lamb and Cheese ($13.90) looks unique to me. The lightly spiced tasty lamb was spread over the Pide and topped with cheese. It tasted delicious and better with the baby lettuce. The baby lettuce not only reduce and compliment the strong flavour of the dish, it gives additional crunchiness to the Pide which is a little wet due to the meat. Yummy!

Best Turkish food in Sing

Best Turkish food in Singapore that I've found after more than a year of looking. Authentic favourites and good ingredients cooked the traditional way.

Nice, if you're not a kebab fan.

On Friday 16 May 2014, my colleagues and I went up to this cafe because downstairs was full up. So we were spillover customers. If you like doner kebab, maybe, just maybe, avoid this place. The set lunch is touted as something that comes with "green salad" and soup of the day. Turns out, what they meant by green salad is the ONE (1) romaine leaf on your kebab plate, topped with ONE (1) black olive, ONE (1) cherry tomato, and ONE (1) slice of onion. Uhh, I may be wrong, but I call that a plate garnish. With GST, a small doner kebab (with dried-out and too-salty chicken) comes up to $13.20, including the lettuce leaf and a small cup of instant mushroom soup. Arkadas is not too bad, if you are not a real kebab fan.
