Bosphorus Hasan Turkish Restaurant (2009-02-03)
We wandered around Shinjuku () and found Bosphorus Hasan hidden on the
second floor of a small building in a quiet side street. There
were only three other occupied tables when we arrived close to
1pm. The decor and background music were "middle eastern", a
style I don't know how to describe, but you just know the moment all
those colorful tiles and tasseled table cloths hit your eyes.
Besides the two Turkish chefs behind the semi-open kitchen, a
middle-aged Turkish man was the sole waiter and cashier. He got
pretty busy later on as new diners gradually filled the restaurant.
We chose some classic Turkish dishes and they were pretty good. I especially loved the hot and crispy/fluffy pide and eggplant dip/salad thing. This is a restaurant we will return if we are in the neighborhood and I'll definitely order the bread again and other yummy-looking dishes on the menu.
