Eclectic decor, Turkish food and a Mediterranean vibe at JBR
Time Out Dubai staff
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010
For those not familiar with Turkish food, the menu at Kosebasi – an export of one of Turkey’s most highly regarded restaurants – may confound. Many dishes are somewhat similar to Lebanese, but there are nuances that make them different, and all the names are, well, in Turkish. Don’t let this put you off, as the staff are both friendly and exceedingly helpful. Patlican salatas, the Turkish rendition of baba ganoush, makes for a silken dip, especially when paired with the billowy fresh baked bread. The mixed grill is also a good bet, as it comes heaving with an assortment of tender, intricately flavoured meats. Plus, the place is reasonable to boot, making it a prime choice for meat lovers residing near the Marina.
