Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine

We have dined many times at the Winter Park location of Bosphorous and know well it’s reputation for delicious and authentic Turkish food. Didn’t know this location in the Dr. Phillips area existed but were delighted to stumble upon it one Saturday when looking for a place to have lunch after visiting the outlet mall in Orlando.

IMG_0375We started with an order of hot fresh baked Lavas bread with Babaganoush (fresh smoked eggplant purée with tahini, olive oil, and yogurt) and Haydiri (thick and creamy yogurt mixed with walnuts, dill, and mint) for dipping. This bread arrives at the table all puffed up and deflates when poked with a fork to tear apart and eat. Great for sharing and a must have with any Turkish meal.

My husband ordered his favorite dish of Donner Kebap – tender lamb, grilled vertically and thinly sliced) with rice and Turkish style veggies (beets, carrots). IMG_0377I had the Yesil Salata house salad – Romaine hearts, spring mix, tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, feta cheese, tabbouleh, and Turkish black olives with their special dressing and added grilled lamb chunks. The salad was huge. I had never had tabbouleh before and I found I liked it. I love the way they fix lamb – the spices and the grilling make for incredible tasting meat.

My husband finished the meal with a cup of strong Turkish coffee.

Lunch prices are lower than dinner and there are specials for added savings. The menu includes selections for kids. My niece likes their pizza. I highly recommend either location of Bosphorous for an enjoyable tasty meal.IMG_0379
