Bosphorous Istanbul Cafe - Indianapolis

In a country of chain restaurants, it can be challenging to find good, independent places to eat. I had the fortune of visiting a independently owned Turkish restaurant on the southeast side of downtown Indianapolis recently.

I learned about the Bosphorous Istanbul Cafe on the internet while searching for Döner Kebaps. I fell in love with Döner Kebaps when I lived in Germany in the early 90’s, and I happily renewed my acquaintance with them last fall in Portugal.

A marinated combination of beef and lamb is grilled on a rotisserie throughout the day. The meat is then shaved into a pita and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and a yogurt-like sauce. It’s absolutely delicious.

My google search for Döner Kebaps in Indianapolis led me to the Bosphorous Cafe, tucked into an old house on S. East Street across from Eli Lilly. It opens for lunch and features a lunch and dinner menu.

Of course, I opted for the Döner Kebap with french fries, and I wasn’t disappointed.

The menu features a Bosphorous Special, which provides a sampling of several entrees with enough food for two.
