At the edge of the known culinary world lies Divan Turkish Kitchen. This burgeoning neighborhood near Christian Street doesn’t even have a name, but this inexpensive BYOB could help put it on the map. Divan’s cold meze platter alone is worth a visit, with mild, smooth hummus, fragrant stuffed grape leaves, and eggplant prepared three lusty ways. From the grill come lamb, chicken and döner kabobs served over thin Turkish pitas.
The chicken shish kebab and the spinach dumlings were unreal when we had a dinner at Divan last night.
I got baklava, my husband got kazandibi as desserts. They sealed the deal. Superb. Posted by Boni: Oct. October 29th, 2009 at 4:05 AM
This is by far my most favourite restaurant in Philadelphia. My wife got spinach dumplings and I had a mixed grill platter. They were both unreal. Baklava is a must at Divan.
The price and the taste of the food made us regulars. Posted by Michael: Sep. September 8th, 2009 at 3:02 AM
