Yesil Firin


More: Good and affordable Turkish fast food

Yesil Firin might look like a slightly upgraded version of the standard Turkish Imbiss (that is, fast food place), with its Doener Kebap grill. They always say that first impressions are important, and Yesil Firin is clean, has quick and cordial service, and fresh, not outrageous design. The food itself is an advanced version of the Turkish fast-food restaurant: you have your Doener and grilled meat, but also salads, first courses, Turkish stews that taste as if you mother might have made them (if she were Turkish and knew how to cook, that is), desserts, and even breakfasts with kiddie-menus.

On top of all of that, Yesil Firin is also highly affordable: a meal of three first courses, two main courses and lots of drinks cost 27 EUR including service; you can get a full meal (from the Ayran, through soup, grilled meat with salad and all the way to the rice-pudding dessert) for as little as 9.99; and a "daily special" stew with rice/chips and salad for 5 EUR.
