Bosphorus Hasan Shinjuku – Enjoy Halal Food From One of Three Grand Cuisines
Authentic Turkish restaurant bustling with customers
Bosphorus Hasan specializes in the Turkish food, one of the three grand cuisines in the world. Located in Shinjuku 3-chome, the restaurant is always bustling with a wide variety of customers. Some stop by the restaurant after enjoying the comedy talk at the nearby theatre Suehirotei, and others make reservations on the web during their sightseeing in Tokyo. You can also occasionally find people working for other restaurants in the neighborhood.
Hasan Unal, the owner and chef of the restaurant, is well known for his joyful personality and enthusiastic talks. Some regular customers keep coming back to hear the passionate way he describes his dishes.
Where cultures meet – a variety of spices and ingredients
Unal says “many people associate Turkey with the Middle East as the majority of the population is Muslim. In fact, Turkey is geographically on the border of Asia and Europe, and its food is heavily influenced by its neighbors like Greece, Bulgaria and Georgia. Because of the Silk Road, the Turkish food uses various kinds of spices and ingredients, while we also use many cooking methods like grilling, stewing or deep frying.”
Traditional food with fresh baked breads
The Turkish cuisine is said to be a composite of foods invented by nomads, indigenous people on the Anatolian peninsula, and immigrants from the Central Asia. At this restaurant, you can also order freshly baked breads to enjoy with the Turkish food. Servers can give you an advice as to which dish goes well with the bread.
Shows by authentic belly dancers from Turkey
The restaurant has a large space for authentic belly dancers to perform (the show is offered three times a week from 20:00 on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday). There are several course menus available for big groups, and you can also add all-you-can-drink to the pre-fix course.
