I was craving something different for lunch with Mr. Knodel. So I looked around the Midtown Lunch website and stumbled across Akendiz. Although I wasn't looking for an under $10 meal, I was certainly intrigued. So off we went to have some Turkish food for lunch.
Akendiz is a proper sit down restaurant with quick service. We sat along the wall on a 2 top table and was immediately served bread and water.
The bread in handy because I wanted to try the Tamara ($6.50) which is whipped red caviar. The portion was generous and the dip creamy. Slightly fishy but not in a off put way. I really enjoyed this. It certainly whet my appetite.
