Sultan Kebab, Peace Centre
I noticed this kebab shop (1 Sophia Road #01-15, 6338-8750) while passing by Selegie Road the other day, so I came by tonight to check it out. Their menu was very simple: just a sandwich, roll, rice platter, or iskender kebab using either beef or chicken on those rotating spit contraptions. They unfortunately had run out of beef already by the time I had arrived, so I had to settle for the chicken, of which I went for the iskender variety.
I've never been to Turkey before, so I don't have much to compare this to, but on its own merits, this thing was great: the tomato sauce was excitingly spicy while the cuts of chicken sat on buttered pieces of bread, all with yogurt for you to douse this in. I don't think it was that authentic based upon what I've read about iskender kebab, but it was good enough (and in part, small enough) for me to pop right back up to the counter for seconds. Unfortunately they sold their last bit of food just 30 seconds before I got there, and hence were finished for the night already.
It turns out that they open at 11 AM and just go until they sell out, which is around 8 or 8:30 PM. Too bad - this greasy spicy concoction would have been great after some drinks, and we could sure use another late night kebab shop around here.
Digested at 8:20 PM
