Best Turkish - 2013
Nazif's Turkish Grill & Deli
Nestled in one of the hundreds of shockingly similar patchwork strip centers on Westheimer, Nazif's stands out by offering exceptional authentic Turkish fare that goes beyond the simple Americanized kebabs and hummus you may be used to. With a focus on baked goods, Nazif's serves up Turkish-style pizza called pide topped with scrambled eggs, meats and cheese as well as myriad fluffy wraps stuffed to the gills with chargrilled meat and vegetables. The windows advertise lunch specials at a great value, but the perfect time to visit is on a Sunday for the brunch, when large Turkish families gather to take in the stellar (and surprisingly inexpensive) buffet of fresh veggies, ezme, pilaki and more.
