The New Place Serving Turkish Food On Broad Ripple – Indianapolis Monthly
The Mediterranean restaurant Usta offers traditional Istanbul dishes in the area.
If you have never dreamed to have Turkish neighbors inviting you over for meze platters and kebabs, a new Broad Ripple spot may be the next best thing. In April, Istanbul residents Sakin and Gulay Demir opened Mediterranean restaurant Usta, the perfect place to taste a dry Turkish wine while munching on haydari, yogurt dill dip with a splash of garlic. , or ezme, a pepper relish with lots of fresh herbs. Other appetizers include the sigara borek, the cigar-shaped phyllo pastries stuffed with feta and parsley, and the lightly fried zucchini and carrot pancakes accompanied by a zipped tzatziki. For a starter, any kebab in Usta will satisfy, although Adana’s juicy lamb and ground beef kebab is a real taste of Istanbul.
