Bringing authenticity to the palate, Warung Turki – Shisha Lounge has proven itself a dynamic eatery in Jakarta.
Turkish cuisine is a culinary heritage that has been passed down through generations for hundreds of years. Influenced by the great Ottoman Empire, the food commonly revolves around flavoursome spices and meat, creating a treat for the taste buds. Inspired by this heritage and his love for his own country, chef Sezai Zorlu decided to open Warung Turki – Shisha Lounge in 2015 after the success of the more opulent Turkuaz – Authentic Turkish and Ottoman Cuisine.
Tucked away in a quiet corner within the popular Kemang enclave, this eatery is a Mediterranean Turkish oasis like no other. Occupying a three-storey building, diners are invited to savour authentic Turkish home cooking crafted from family recipes.
Just like its sibling, Warung Turki – Shisha Lounge offers an excellent dining experience. Diners are treated to a host of culinary and sensory experiences, which remain a good memory long after their visit. Upon entering, guests are greeted by the restaurant’s signature wood-fired clay oven, a product of the proprietors’ passion to bring authentic Turkish cuisine to Jakarta.
The one-of-a-kind oven serves as the restaurant’s beating heart, slow-grilling or baking sumptuous dishes such as Firinda Kuzu Incik, lamb shank with baked mushroom, shallots and garlic served with butter rice; Pide, traditional Turkish village-style thin pizza; Kagit Kebab, wood oven-baked minced meat with chilli and tomatoes, and chef Sezai’s favourite childhood food; or all-time favourites Zeytinyagli Humus, which consists of chickpeas and tahini with olive oil, and Babaganouc – grilled aubergine, tomato, chilli pepper, garlic, and olive oil.
After the delicious meal, relax with a selection of the best shisha available in Indonesia while enjoying the daily live music. Don’t forget to try the world-famous Baklava dessert or the vegetarian-friendly Sutlac with a cup of traditional Turkish tea served in a warm pot.
