Why the Ottoment Empire Fell: Turk Kebab Pale in Comparison to

jonkyo | Dec 18, 201402:49 PM    

Istanbul Kitchen 535 86th St, Brooklyn.

This is near TJ Maxx just east of 5th ave, on the north side of 86.

I visited Istanbul Kitchen on 86th Street, and discovered why the Ottoman Empire fell. It was because the Kebabs in other regions are just so much better.

They were not a dry and miniature as the over cooked Kebabs I had at the Istanbul 86th Street, near Bay Parkway.

The lamb was presented well, and cooked to my liking, but for such a meal, I do find Russian, Azerbaijan and Uzbek venues are far superior.

Out of the two venues I state above, Istanbul Kitchen is the better of the two. I would return to this restaurant but not for Kebabs. i would eat the Lahmacun (Turkish Meat Pizza)
