Kebab 49 (Dundas & Kipling)
Located 5308 Dundas St. W. replacing Turkish Kitchen
Is it just a name change? New management? New ownership?
Thanks in advance.
Was there this evening around 6 pm - popular crowded eat-in area. Plenty of menu choices - they were working quickly to serve up tasty big portions. Tried the mixed topping pide ($10.99) and sigaras. The problem with their sigaras - made with wonton wrappers rather than phyllo pastry. Strange. But still tasty - creamy mint dip was even better. Pide was quite good - almost as good as Pizza Pide on Pape.
I would definitely return and attempt to eat in next time.
This is a true chow find. Went back for dinner last night (Friday) and by 8 pm there was a full happy buzz of diners and cooks keeping busy. The wood oven lamb cooked in a clay dish was spectacular (spicy and topped with cheese). It comes with rice, an onion-tomato salad and fresh turkish bread. The lahmacun meat is a tad gamey but the iskender paca soup is spot on with tender chunks of beef in a tasty opaque yellow broth, perfect for winter. Meals always end with glass cups of tea (complimentary) and we also had the very tasty turkish fruit juices, sour cherry and peach ($2 per can).
Two weeks ago, had an equally impressive experience with the wood oven lamb in clay dish (not spicy and served with a regular salad) and ayran yogurt drink.
This place is the real chow deal!
re: Food Tourist
You've been single-handedly keeping this thread afloat Food Tourist, so I'm going to have to give it a try when I'm down in the area.
It is pretty close to Antalya, which is a good Turkish restaurant in those parts.
I'm not too far from Shirin Kebab House on Vic Park and Eglinton, and that's become a staple and go-to restaurant for me. As well as Pizza Pide, or Mr. Pide obviously.
But will definitely try out Kebab 49 sometime and report back!
Thanks for the tip.
