Authentic Turkish Breakfast

cbrundage | Jul 7, 2007 01:33 PM

I was reading about breakfasts in other countries today on Wikipedia, and came across the most delicious sounding breakfast I have ever heard of... ever. Or at least today. No. Ever.

I want it:

Turkish breakfast consists of fresh white sourdough bread, white cheese (feta), yellow cheese (kasar), fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, black and/or green olives, butter, honey, preserves, soujouk, salami, pastirma and a boiled egg — all accompanied by hot black tea in small tulip-shaped glasses. Breakfasts can be very elaborate for company or on weekends, and may include a variety of breads, pastries, and spreads, and several fresh fruits and vegetables in season, but the essential breakfast ingredients for almost every Turk on a daily basis are bread, cheese, olives, and tea.

Does anyone know a place in LA (or within 2-3 hours driving distance) where I can find a delicious, authentic, "homestyle," Turkish breakfast like the one above?
