First Review by Cam

ok, but not great - Edit

I heard a lot about el Turco from many people, so I was eager to go. While I found the selection of food nice, nothing jumped out at me as being above average. I'm not sure the food is prepared fresh on the spot, some seems like it is, some isn't, it wasn't easy to clearly identify what's vegan, vegetarian and meat, though apparently for others it is. The products don't seem to have anything special meriting the price (organic, seasonal, regional). Service, food preparation and presentation comes across as moderately lazy. While it's not bad, for these prices I will not be rushing back. Personally i preferred the fresher tastes and efforts of both Dolma and Moonfood.

Pros: vegetarian options

Cons: taste is not fresh, price-a bit expensive, self-service

Zoo - Edit

I arrived about 1:30PM, hoping I would be at the tail end of the lunch crowd. No. I roamed around for about 15 minutes through dense crowds in search of a table (...or anyone that might offer any help or explanation of how things work). The food line was easily another 15 minutes. My lunch hour was gone. And so was I. So much for the efficiency of prepared food.

Pros: Uhhhhh.....  Lots of choices.  You won't feel

Cons: Insanity. Seemingly understaffed; no one to answe

Turkish gem - Edit

Went there for dinner and was happily surprised by both the food and the range of choices for vegetarians and vegans.
Picture the best of what Turkey can offer food-wise and here it is!
Stuffed vine leafs, imaginative salads, flavorful dips (hommous, bean, beetroot, etc), yaourt-based dish, eggplants, you name it.
Will definitively go back.
