Turkish manti

Manti are dumplings/ravioli stuffed with minced beef in a yogurt sauce.

I don't think i've seen it anywhere around town. Or for that matter many Turkish restaurants either.

    Some of the Armenian groceries on Washington in Pasadena have frozen manti--it's pretty good and easy to prepare. I've never seen manti in a restaurant though.

      The turkish student associatin at Caltech's website says that cravings on sunset is a turkish restaurant, so give them a call as well. Perhaps they can help you.

        Cravings doesn't have these. In fact, their menu isn't very Turkish at all. I would LOVE to find some too!

        Manti are also Central Asian. Uzbekistan has them, although I didn't like them (or it) very much.

          Is the traditional Turkish way to serve Manti is with the tomato sauce and the garlic yogurt dip?
