They're pretty new to Toronto - we've had a lot of Turkish immigrants in the last decade - they're finally developing a neighbourhood. I'm beyond giddy that it's really close to us. It's like Greek food kicked up a taste and technique notch, with a lovely Afghani/subcontinental influence.
I really wish I'd been on the ball enough to go to Istanbul 20 or 30 years ago. It must have been amazing.
And I could whack myself when I had a chance to go to Japan and didn't.. My teacher/later and now friend knew and still does, so much - too long to describe. I could have used credit - much better than for a refrigerator.
