About the restaurant

Young Turks Efendy may mean “gentleman” in old Turkish but there’s nothing old-fashioned about this Balmain stalwart run by chef Somer Sivrioglu, with wife Asli and brother-in-law Fatih Kulle running front-of-house. Fitting then that the broader definition, according to the website, is someone ‘with a traditional upbringing who adopts modern views’. That’s the approach Sivrioglu brings to both the menu which showcases five centuries of regional Turkish recipes to which he has added his personal, contemporary touch, while making the most of the finest local produce. Efendy’s seasonal menu is designed to share, or you can choose to go for their signature Anatolian Feast which features some of the restaurant’s more popular dishes including charcoal- smoked eggplant babaganush and lamb testicles with pistachio chilli and almond tarator. Sivrioglu makes frequent trips back to Turkey to keep up to date with what’s happening in the mother country, and has even published his own cookbook – ‘Anatolia’ – if you want to try out any of these delicacies at home. Efendy’s breakfast was voted the city’s best in the 2014 SMH Good Food Guide, and no wonder: their ‘Van’ style breakfast menu includes freshly-baked pide, an array of cheeses, jams such as cherry, rose and fig, along with hot dishes such as Menemen eggs, sujuk spicy sausages, cigar borek and pachanga borek. Their drinks menu also hits the spot with options such as homemade lemonade with muddled pomegranate or mint, or for the more adventurous, Ayran, a salty yoghurt drink. If you’re after something a little more alcoholic to accompany breakfast, lunch or dinner, why not try a Narosa – sparkling wine, pomegranate and Pama pomegranate liqueur or a Vishnosa – Sparkling wine, vodka marinated sour cherries and cherry juice. As they say in Turkey – Afiyet olsun (Enjoy your meal)! Best dish: kaygana-melted kashar cheese with carob molasses and walnuts
