Week 2 Pre-BYOB Post - Turkish Cuisine & Bakery (Dan) - December 6th 2008

This Saturday I invite you all to travel with me to another region of the city to sample the cuisine from yet another region of the world. Please join me this December 6th at Turkish Cuisine & Bakery, located at 5605 North Clark in Andersonville. A reservation has been set for 7:30 p.m.

What to expect? Typical shananigans plus (keep your fingers crossed) live entertainment, including smairtings belly dancing. We should have no trouble getting a waitress to torment our little Greek friend with a slow clap at this establishment. Stamos, bring some Ouzo along to increase intoxication and hatred. Or bring its Turkish counterpart, Raki, to seek sympathy.

Per online reviews, it would appear as though the Turks and Cubans have at least a couple traits in common: tasty food and slow service. But, as demonstrated at our prior gathering, slow service favors one of our primary objectives: alcohol consumption. One reviewer has boasted her group drank two bottles of wine and four beers while waiting for their food. How pathetic. The food has received good reviews. Prepare your belly for delicious Mediterranean fare.

I wish I could provide you with a primary resource to research this venue so you don’t have to take my word for it. Unfortunately, the restaurant website is not in working order. This was a con for me in making my decision, but the pros (my love for Mediterranean cuisine and the chance to take a trip to Andersonville) outweighed my disgust with their hoopty ass website. If they are putting all there love and energy into delicious cuisine, who can complain?

The Clark bus is the most direct route to the restaurant. The Bryn Mawr Red Line stop is aproximately 1/2 mile away.

See you there!

I can't take credit for the use of smairtings. You can complement my editor.

Ok, I take it back, you're OK, Mr. Editor is better though.
