Chicago, IL 60613

Critic’s Notes

Quietly producing high-quality hummus and kebabs alongside complex dishes such as the Sultan’s Delight, an entrée of lamb, mozzarella, and eggplant, this unassuming storefront deserves more than neighborhood-gem status. The restaurant deftly spins Turkish favorites such as mucver— zucchini pancakes flavorfully filled, fried airy and crisp, and served with a garlicky yogurt sauce. You may not notice the precise execution, but you will appreciate the delicious results.
