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