Turkish Restaurant in Burlington County- Have you ever had great shish kebab for $10?
I have spent the last month discovering The One Minute Cafe/Turkish Family Restaurant on Route 130 in Burlington County (Edgewater Park). It is in a miniscule strip mall, sharing a small parking lot with a Dominican hair stylist and a Metro PC shop so you may zoom past it. In the parking lot, sometimes it is a challenge to find a spot. Having overcome those obstacles, order the lentil soup, opulent and craving a fresh-squeezed lemon for company. Order the lamb or chicken shish kebab, served with white rice and fresh salad. The lamb was quivering on my plate. Tonight we tried the homemade stuffed grape leaves; cabbagy-sour wrappings bursting with rice, ground lamb and spices. Have you ever had shish kebab for $10? They always serve the grilled dishes, but there are different entrees daily, including eggplant stew and the grape leaves. We have had stewed chicken; which was luscious. Finish with a glass of Turkish tea (replete with leaves) and milk custard. Forty dollars for dinner for two with tip, and a food box with tomorrow's large lunch.
The mystery: Why is it called the "One minute Cafe"?
