serving turkish fare, i was impressed by the shisha bar in this eatery. with a service staff that is both warm and polite, i was recommended to try the kebabs combination to share with my friends. served on a pretty copper plate, we tuck into tender chunks of grilled chilli, pilaf and buttery vegetables. great for a light meal.

Located right at the heart of Kampong Glam, this Turkish and Mediterranean restaurant which has been around for almost 8 years is perhaps one of the best hidden gems in Bugis area. Because it's a hidden find, it makes this restaurant a pleasurable, comfortable and cosy place to dine in without much crowd. More importantly, the simple and fresh food prepared here and the quaint, homely yet mystical Turkish decor is really appealing and intriguing for someone like myself, who have never been to Turkey before.

You can dine indoors or simply go alfresco by sitting right outside the restaurant if you would like to enjoy some fresh air.

I recommend starting off with Appetizers (Mezzes):
- Hummus + Garlic Bread
Mashed Middle Eastern chickpeas blended with olive oil, Tahini, cummin, lemon juice and salt

 Mains:
- Karisik Kebab
An indulgent selection of lamp chop, minced lamb and beef meatballs, chicken kebab with rice and mixed vegetable served on a traditional Turkish plate. This is a king-sized dish fit for two to three people. Another Alaturka specialty dish to satisfy the one who hunger for meat. I'm not a meat-type of person but I really like the chicken kebab as it tasted really tender and delicious.

Dessert:
- Kunefe
This decadent Turkish dessert is what beckoning me to come back to Alaturka. This fine vermicelli-like pastry baked with cheese and sugar syrup has swept me off my feet. It didn't look appealing at first as I thought I was going to taste blend vermicelli with double cream. But Kunefe took me by surprise with its crunchy, buttery and caramelized taste, not forgetting the melted cheese that is embedded within it. It's like eating a slice of western butter cake except that it's crunchy and super fragrant when coated with a layer of cream. Say toast to whoever invented this dessert!

Due to their lack of manpower, service is a bit lacking. Who wants to work as a waiter nowadays?

We went on a wednesday evening for dinner. We ordered blue and we got green, had to order again and again for the correct food to be tabled. Disappointed by the quality of service, food was ok.
