Hollywood, FL 33019
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
The longest views in Hollywood come courtesy of the ocean-facing tables at Hasan Kochan's 17-year-old Turkish restaurant on the Hollywood Broadwalk. Kochan's food is homemade and moderately priced ($3.95 to $9.95 for small plates, up to $17.95 for entrées) - from ubiquitous Mideast staples like spinach pie and baba gannouj to more outré fare: feta and parsley stuffed cigars, little Turkish pizzas topped with lamb and vegetables, tripe soup, red kidney bean stew, a dish of fried sardines, a plate of pan-tossed liver cubes. A side of thick cacik, yogurt, and cucumber salad is as mild as an ocean breeze. Finish with a cup of Turkish coffee and an oh-so-sweet slab of baklava.
Tips from foursquare
Worth the stop according to the locals
Muy rico el sandwich vegetariano. Cuidado con el yogurt es salado en Turquía. Delicioso el Baklava, muy.
Skip all the crap on the boardwalk... This place has excellent food, great place for vegetarians or vegans! Friendly service, try the Efes beer...
Pricey for what you get. Skip the falafel... Sorry, not great but it's always fun eating at the beach!
Fantastic food and view!
