What were you thinking? Of course we had dinner before Canele. It was settled at Cappadoccia Cafe, serving Turkish and Mediterreanean food. We got an appetizer plate for two (pictured below) and a Turkish pizza - spinach, feta cheese and roma tomato on top of homemade pide bread.
Both tasted okay although I must admit, the mezza plate had a rather "unique" combination. The falafels were made from lentils instead of ground chickpeas and shaped into a little log but tasted nice and crunchy. But since when was shishamo and fried springrolls Turkish delights? The hummus was served on top of homemade pide bread. The texture was creamy and tasted nutty, a little too salty, which called for the bread I suppose, but the bottom of the bread was soaked with dressing from the salad in the center, making the bread soggy. The tabouleh was not worth even mentioning about. There were also a few slices of cucumbers with yogurt dill sauce that was just ordinary.
The pide pizza was more pide bread baked with the toppings and brushed with olive oil. Too little spinach to even justify its mention on the menu and there was definitely mozzarella mixed into the feta. I thought I had better over at Sofra's, at half the price too. Oh well, never try never know. Nonetheless, I was glad I could check the restaurant off my list of to-try.
