Village Voice's Description

This Turkish lunch counter with Uzbek influences makes one amazing sandwich. Deploying a round, thick, seeded flatbread called lapeshka ("home bread" on the menu), the meat wrangler heaps on both lamb and chicken doner kebab (a/k/a gyro), then loads on lettuce, tomato, and purple onions. Finally, he pours on red-hot sauce and white yogurt sauce. Yum! Other formidable offerings include a pilaki salad with tiny tender white beans and green onions in a tart dressing, and adana kebab, a flame-grilled undulating cylinder of coarsely chopped meat laced with onions and chiles.

Tips from foursquare

  • Matthew on 05/31/10

    The lamb gyro on home bread. Make it happen for yourself.

  • The Corcoran Group on 04/30/11

    One of the best Turkish restaurants in New York City. Try the Shepherd Salad, the Lamb Gyro, the Chicken Kebab or the Special Memo Shish kebob.

  • Boo-Boo W. on 11/03/12

    Adana kabob is the best and always order homebread

  • Village Voice on 01/03/11
