Cuisine: Greek, Mediterranean, Turkish
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35
Welcome to Bodrum Kitchen, a sumptuous slice of the Mediterranean in New Lynn’s buzzy Brickworks.
The outside is covered in beautiful Mediterranean tiles, with enormous windows that open up onto a small play area for little ones, while inside looks like a contemporary Turkish coffee house. Think evil eye charms, beaten silver tables and aquamarine velvet banquettes.
Menus feature Turkish and Greek flavours such as souvlaki, wholesome salads, tagine and fried calamari. To up the holiday spirit still further, opt for the sharing mezze platter and taste your way around the Mediterranean. The homemade flat bread with fresh hummus and taramasalata is as simple yet delicious as they come.
An excellent selection of European wines and cocktails such as pomegranate caipiroska are just the thing to wash it all down, and naturally you couldn’t possibly leave without trying the homemade baklava. These delicious folds of crispy pastry, sticky with honey and pistachio, have already earned a loyal local following.
