Turkish Food in Somerville
It is opening week for Cafe Istanbul'lu, Somerville.
237 Holland.

Istanbul'lu is great for those who previously had to go to the crowded Sofra (in my opinion a little too celebrity chef-y place) for their fill of Turkish food.

The food is authentic. The Chef Hussian very down to earth. His wife who waits tables makes dining there a pleasant experience. They used to be on Beacon Hill, Brighton.. before. A former governor was a huge fan of Hussian's rice pudding when they were on Beacon HIill.

I hope they stay here for a long, long time...

Food is great. Lots of tapas. the dinner menu and website should be coming up soon. Watch out for updates. Short walk from Davis T-stop.

1 Belmont St, Cambridge, MA 02138
