Sufi Turkish and Mediterranean Cuisine

with 2 comments

Our first visit to Sufi Turkish and Mediterranean Cuisine! The place was very crowded, with many customers smoking Shisha. For our first time there, we felt rather overwhelmed with the disorganization and rowdiness. We quickly settled down on a small table by the side and made our orders.

Patlican Musakka

Patlican Musakka

Patlican Musakka ($17) – A special Mediterranean stew – chicken with eggplant and potatoes, topped with cheese and baked in a claypot, served with rice or bread. We’ve never had Mediterranean food before, but the description of the stew topped with cheese enticed us. The Patlican Musakka was served atop a lighted stove. The claypot was more like a hotplate as it was rather shallow. There was a generous layer of semi-melted and slightly charred cheese covered the stew. Breaking apart the cheese layer revealed the “stew” of minced meat and potatoes. The stew wasn’t what we had expected. It reminded us more of the hotplate tofu we get from most neighbourhood coffee shops. There wasn’t much of a stew factor, more like just minced meat in sauce. Hence, the “wow” factor of the Special Mediterranean Stew (as described in the menu) didn’t stand out.

Tavuk Shish

Tavuk Shish

Tavuk Shish ($15) – Skewered marinated chicken breast, charcoal grilled and glazed with delicious homemade sauce, served with rice. This was the better dish of the night. The chicken breast was slightly charred on the surface and the burnt layer was bit crunchy. The chicken meat itself was juicy, succulent and tender. It was well marinated and packed with strong and robust flavours. For $15, the serving of chicken kebab was pretty generous as well.

Well, ambience wise, if you’re not a fan of a huge crowd smoking around you (be it Shisha or typical cigarettes), do avoid this place. Traffic in that area was a downright mess as well.
