After noticing Troya, a new Turkish restaurant at the corner of 5th and Clement about a month ago and checking the menu about 10 days ago,I finally stopped by with a friend today of lunch. The big draw for me was manti- both beef[sadly, not lamb] and vegie versions- as a regular menu item. La Turka served[s] them once a week and was "out" both times I tried when they first opened. I love manti [similar to tortellini with a yogourt,tomato, garlic, mint sauce] and these [I had the beef ones] were homemade, and the right size,shape and taste evoking nice memories of travels in Turkey and bordering countries. There was a decent sized portion for $9.00 [11.00 for dinner]. The rest of the menu seemed pretty standard [Sis/kebab heavy] but I'll definately return for my manti fix though I wish they'd do lamb ones. They seemed glad for our business and eager to please- but then they've only been open a month. With Burma Superstar at the other end of the block, this has become a block worth finding parking for....
