Anadolu Cafe on Com Ave (long)

I was sad to see Babasco, the Turkish place right next to Angora on Com Ave, close down before I ever got a chance to visit. So when I noticed that the Anadolu Cafe opened right in the same spot that Babasco once occupied, I made a point of getting there.
I had the Su Boregi (Cheese Borek) to start, Adana Kebab sandwich (ground lamb w/ red bell peppers and paprika) for my main and finished with Sekerpare (cookies soaked in honey).
The borek was made by the chef earlier, so it was nuked for me. Never had a borek before but this didn't leave me curious to try more of them.
The sandwich was ok- home made bread, with some cut up cucumber, some seasoning, tomatoes, and then the adana (which was very good and very tasty). The bread was good but there was too much of it (or perhaps there wasn't enough meat). In any case, I finished with 1/4 of the bun remaining on each half.
The sekerpare were rich (would have been rich even without being soaked in honey) and the best part of the meal. They are labelled as the "chef's best" so I'm curious to try the others.
Clearly, the folks here are new at managing a restaurant (they seemed overwhelmed when there's > 2 customers). I think it has potential though so I will try it at least one more time.
Lastly, they don't have a website so I took a menu and will scan and them submit to menupix tomorrow.
