Doner Kabob

Sometimes, wandering aimlessly for lunch allows you to find a place that you hadn't discovered before.  Such is the case for Cafe Istanbul.  When I saw the front sign advertising Doner Kabob, I decided I had to check it out.

The menu covers a large variety of Turkish inspired kabobs, and other items to be added.  If for some reason, this isn't your thing, they do have pizza and sandwiches, though why would you go into a place called Cafe Istanbul for pizza?  Depending on what you order, you have an unlimited selection choice at the topping bar, which is pretty cool.

The Doner was very thinly sliced and covered with a spicy tomato based sauce.  The meat it laid ontop a huge bed of rice, and grilled veggies (mostly onions and squash) accompanies it.  Adjacent is a small pile of lettuce with tomatoes and green peppers.  At the topping bar, I decided to do spicy chickpeas, spicy onions (these were kicking), and a scoop full of humus.  Sadly, they were out of tahini.  There were many more options, but I didn't want to over do it.  Yogurt comes standard, so didn't have to add more. 

To my surprise, there was also bread included, seems as if it was some sort of version of pita, however very far from flat.  Other than the toppings, there weren't any overbearing flavors here, and to me, the toppings is what sold me on it.  One thing that somewhat disappointed me, was when I watched my plate head into the microwave for a quick warming.  Sad times.  Not to shabby though, and much better than initially expected.
