Divan Kitchen serves delicious and authentic Turkish cuisine. They offer a selection of kebabs, hummus, kofte and lahmacun (Turkish pizza).
This was sort of a consolation destination from our original choice. We had spotted it on a drive-by before so we wanted to try sometime anyways.
It actually looks like just a standard little (modern) diner or coffee joint. It's nice, but nothing unique inside. The server we had that day was not Turkish, but he was very efficient. All the Turkish guys were in the kitchen.
Food came out reasonable quickly. Along with Turkish tea that we ordered ("bottomless" by the way).
The red lentil soup was different. It was sort of like a red lentil congee. Came with some pita as well and it was very generously portioned. For $5? Tasty meal by itself.
The falafel is claimed to be their own family secret recipe. It certainly was different. Was it good? Yup, for sure. We also had the kofte plate. Lack of planning, so we basically had 2 of the same thing, one the "vegetarian" version. Mind you, the rice that came with the plates was very well done. Also a side cup of salad. Nothing special about that, except that it tasted unusually refreshing to me.
Everything was cooked after we ordered it. We could hear it being cooked up in the kitchen right there, so everything done fresh.
Another recommended place! I'm sitting on the fence as to whether it's worth a trip out here. But if you're within 20 minutes, I'd say why not? Great, tasty food that isn't too greasy. There's some unique stuff here and most of all, it's prepared with care and good, fresh ingredients. Thumbs up!
