Walk in to the Turkish Cafe and Lounge in Plano, TX and the first thing you’ll notice are the shiny, elaborate stained-glass lamps adorning the ceiling.

For those familiar with Greek or Middle Eastern food, Turkish cuisine is easy to adopt. Just don’t think a gyro is the same in every country of the Mediterranean.

The strips of gyro meat served over toasted bread chunks were very tender and flavorful. The tomato-garlic sauce was very good, and the simple plain Greek yogurt that came on the side was a refreshing complement to the rest of the dish. I loved the grilled tomato and green bell pepper, especially dipped in yogurt. I only wish there would have been a few more veggies on the plate, and I missed the pita bread that is served with Greek-style gyros, and the meat wasn’t the same as Greek gyro meat.

The eggplant kebabs were skewered alongside lamb meatballs and served over rice with pickled cabbage and salad. I missed the yogurt that I had with the gyro, but when I requested some I was given tzatziki. Not the same thing, but good enough. I am an eggplant lover and enjoyed the dish, but the eggplant could have used a brush of olive oil and more seasoning.

The falafels were delicious little pillows of chickpea goodness, with a proper crunchy outer shell and warm, soft interior. They were served with a tzatiki-like yogurt sauce and were delicious paired with the babaganoush.

For dessert, the waiter brought a poached pear stuffed with walnuts and topped with whipped cream for the birthday girl I was celebrating with on my first visit to the restaurant. She took a bite and kindly asked if anyone at the table would like to try it. I happen to love pears. A lot. So inevitably the pear made its way down the table to me, and I must admit I devoured it. But then the waiter brought out two full plates of delicious fresh fruit for everyone to share. It was a never-ending feast! From appetizers to dessert, I could taste the beauty of the Mediterranean diet in everything I ate at the Turkish Cafe and Lounge.

  • Let's talk about the entertainment. We got to see a whirling dervish which was a first for me. This man whirled in circles for SEVEN MINUTES without getting dizzy and falling over...super fun to watch. Then there was a beautiful belly dancer who was just so much fun to watch. There's a dance floor on the main level (which reminds me, if you like to have fun, ask to be seated in the back, not in the enclosed dining area because you will be missing out!). ★★★★★
