Anatolian Pizza

Is this place still around - on St. Clair West between Lansdowne and Dufferin? How's the food? Apparently they have Turkish pizza (would save me a trip to Pizza Pide) and the regular kebab fare.

    By Anatolian pizza, do you mean lahmacun or specifically pide (lahmacun is super thin crust pizza that has a mixture of ground beef, onions, and tomatoes on it; pide is dough shaped like a boat and filled with various ingredients, with the sucuk and kasar combination being the most popular and widespread)? For lahmacun, there are a number of places where you can get that. For pide, Pizza Pide is the only place I know of in the city that serves it.

    For lahmacun, you can get that at Pizza Memo (which is the place you're referring to in your post that is located on St. Clair). There's another Pizza Memo location on College, but that one's not quite as good. You can also get lahmacun on The Danforth at Champion. As well, frozen to take home from Arz, Marche Istanbul, and various other Armenian and Middle Eastern grocery stores.

      Anatolia is still around on st. clair and they do serve pide. I quite enjoy their food - my favorite is the lachmacun and their kebab platters - always fresh and tasty and well priced in a clean environment.

        Aha... I thought he was asking about Anatolian style pizza rather than a restaurant called Anatolia Pizza! Silly me. I didn't realize they serve pide... I'll have to try it!

        Happened to find this place today (just driving around the neighborhood).

        The Kebab (combination chicken/beef) was excellent, as was the Iskender...

        As well, there was mercifully no Muzak, so people could actually talk to each other...

        Worth re-visiting...
