Brooklyn’s Istanbul ParkPosted on Jun 16 in Dine In, Take Outby ShanMasalaPrint
The other day my friend asked me to come to a Turkish restaurant they like going to in Brooklyn called “Istanbul Park”. From the outside, it looks like a normal store and eatery, but inside it’s modestly decorated with nice tables and small Turkish art pieces on the wall. The waitress was very informative and pleasant to talk to. After gazing at the menu, I decided to get a few “safe-bet” appetizers such as hummus and falafel.
As for the entree, I decided to get the Turkish prize of Adana Kabab, while my friend got a dinner special which consisted of a gyro platter with a special tomato based sauce. The appetizers came out on time and were good to munch on with the Turkish bread. The falafel was well cooked and had a great crunch while the hummus left a lot more to be desired. After the appetizers, the entrees came out and were amazing. The Adana Kabab was delicious and flavorful. The portion size was great and I can say it was one of the best I have ever had. The gyro platter was even better. The gyro was layered with sauce and a small layer of crispy, sauce soaked bread. I asked the name of the dish and all they said it was their “special gyro platter”. In conclusion, if your looking for a delicious new place for some good, well priced Turkish food, Istanbul Park is the place to check out.
