Turkish in Midwood - Fantastic

Charlotte Russe | Apr 23, 2005 06:57 PM

Last night a friend and I ventured to Taci's Beyti for our first Turkish meal ever.

If you are put off by florescent lighting and absolutely no atmosphere - go elsewhere. But if you desire a delicious and affordable meal, read on.

We arrived around 8pm and were sent to the dining room next door which was much nicer than the first room, but still tacky. We looked at what others were eating and followed most of their lead.

We started with a smoked eggplant spread ($4)that was delicious and a hot appetizer of rolled turkish phyllo stuffed with feta and herbs and deep fried - absolutely sensational ($4).

For entrees we shared the fresh, whole trout with green salad ($14) and the mixed grill ($14) with lamb kebob, baby lamb chop, and the best souvlaki I've ever tasted, with grilled vegetables, pita, and an onion relish - sliced paper thin with some sort of rub.

We were too full to order turkish coffee or baklava but will the next time - and most definitely there will be a next time.

Also, it's BYOB and the service was excellent!
