Last month the ladies had their monthly night out at Zeyno in Burlingame. It's newish, not expensive, and positioned as "mediterranean" with several "greek" dishes on the menu. The owner is Turkish, and the things I liked best were the turkish ones. Oh, and on Wednesday night we were there, we were entertained by live bouzouki music.
Starting with a round of appetizers, we tried
Sigara böregi, $6 - cigar-shaped deep-fried pastry dough filled with feta, parsley and fresh spices. Greasy for sure, but good and crackly outsides contrasting with the soft filling.
Grilled köfte, $7 - three of these little ground lamb patties were topped with mozzarella and a strip of anchovy. I loved the intensity of the gamey meat and gentle warmth of the spicing, but I noticed that my friends left theirs on the plate. I'd take these juicy mini-lamb burgers over sliders any day.
