For a taste of Istanbul without leaving Moonee Ponds, Melbourne foodies in the know head to Taksim Square Turkish Restaurant & Meze Bar on Mt Alexander Road. Named after the Istanbul district famed for its restaurants, shops and hotels, this venue offers a unique dining experience combining delicious Turkish and Mediterranean flavours, in rustic surrounds of exposed brick, wooden ceiling beams and wall art depicting life in the homeland. Take a seat to ponder an extensive menu plating up hot meze dishes like midye dolma – aromatic stuffed mussels, filled with a blend of rice, pine nuts, raisins, herbs and spices; before larger plates of succulent char-grilled lamb cutlets, vegetables and bulgur. Perhaps opt for whole baby snapper, Greek salad and chips; finishing indulgently with baklava.
