Café Orchid

Chicago, IL 60613

Critic’s Notes

Quietly churning out high-quality hummus and kebabs alongside complex traditional dishes such as the eggplant-mozzarella-lamb entrée Sultan’s Delight, this unassuming storefront deserves more than neighborhood gem status. The restaurant spins Turkish classics with a practiced deftness not seen in lesser Middle Eastern spots. Take the zucchini pancakes called mucver—flavorful filling, fried airy and crisp, served beside sour-strong yogurt-garlic sauce. You may not notice the precise execution, but you will appreciate the delicious results.
