The Mediterranean diet is the one everyone's talking about – and with good reason. Studies have shown that the foods of the Mediterranean region, which includes Greece, Italy, Turkey and others, contribute to a longer and healthier life. You'll find all the delicious components of the traditional Mediterranean diet right here at A La Turca. Our huge menu offers a variety of Turkish dishes you may not find anywhere else, all prepared from scratch using traditional recipes. Because we use only extra virgin olive oil and lots of veggies, our food can't help being as healthy as it is delicious.
If you're new to Turkish food, your taste buds will be in for a treat when you experience ours. If it's a familiar and favorite cuisine, you'll revel in the fresh, authentic flavors you'll discover here. The rich aromas of our food will draw you in and the unbeatable tastes and prices will keep you coming back again and again!
If you choose to begin your meal with a cold appetizer, you'll find that all are jam-packed with fresh veggies like eggplant, white beans, roasted peppers, and tomatoes. Our hot appetizers include lahmacun, which is a Turkish style pizza with ground meat and spices, and the delectable sigara boregi, which is a deep fried pastry filled with parsley and feta. On our sandwich menus, you'll find familiar doner, falafel and kebabs alongside meat and vegetable gozleme, a flatbread wrapped around your choice of meats, veggies and cheeses. Feeling especially hungry? Try one of our meal platters and enjoy marinated sirloin, lamb or chicken beautifully presented with veggies and sauces.
Don't forget dessert! Mediterranean cuisine may be healthy, but it also embraces some especially tasty sweets. Sink into a slice of baklava, or swoon over sutlac, our version of a warm, comforting rice pudding. There's no way you'll leave A La Turca without being completely satisfied.
