Enjoy half-off ($13 for $26) with today's Houston Press Voice Daily Deal on the tempting, traditional Turkish fare at Nazif's Turkish Deli & Grill. Chef Nazif Farsak and his authentic Turkish fare are no longer the best-kept secret in Houston -- our own Katharine Shilcutt recently raved about the restaurant's food, service and atmosphere.
Nazif's is famous for its Mixed Grill, which includes lahmacun (flat-bread pizza), organic and locally raised lamb, kebabs and more. Vegetarians and meat-eaters alike will enjoy the fusion of Turkish flavors, which blend ingredients from Central Asia, the Middle East and the Balkans. With live music every Friday and Saturday night and BYOB without any corkage fee, Nazif's is the new favorite restaurant you haven't tried yet.
Voucher cannot be redeemed until the day after the deal closes, and is not valid for Sunday brunch (10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.); dine-in only, weekend reservations recommended.
