Homage to the culinary tradition of the owner’s home country, Hungry Monkey is famous for serving genuine Turkish cuisine. The Pide bread and yogurt are home-made, and  spices imported all the way from Turkey to guarantee authentic flavor.

The menu is extensive, featuring traditional dishes from various regions of Turkey. Begin with Humus or stuffed grape-leaf Dolma. If you like it traditional, choose as main dish  Shish Kebab, or Döner Kebab  - the thinly sliced meat roasted on a vertical spit.

Also available are special dishes such as the signature  Anatolia Kebab made of chicken and beef, and seafood  marinated in Mediterranean  spices. When it comes to choosing sweets to accompany the strong Turkish Coffee, you are likely to face dilemma. The Baklava is as delicious as her reputation. But to pass on the house specialty?  Made of cheese, shredded phyllo dough, syrup and cream, Kunefe is a true delicacy!

Smokers may want to complete their culinary experience with the traditional Shisha ritual, enjoying the cool fragrant smoke of an apple tobacco. The place is cozy, and - reflecting the owner’s sense of humor- interestingly decorated:  historical photographs from the Ottoman era, vintage donkey bags,  and ‘Nazar’ - an amulet believed to protect against the evil eye, are displayed next to pictures of Marilyn Monroe and other Hollywood icons.
