Authentic, and succulent, offerings abound at Chef Guner's Turkish Grill

Hefty sandwiches, only offered at lunch, are made with Turkish bread or as a tortilla wrap. The list includes falafel, but strangely avoids chicken to focus on, yes, lamb. The doner sandwhich (also offered as an entrée) is what the industrial meat blob presented as gyros in countless Greek joints pretends to. Slivered pieces of lamb and beef are marinated for 24 hours in a vegetable base of green and red peppers, then roasted on the rotisserie; sliced from the roti, they are browned but tender in the mouth. At $6.95, it's a tasty bargain. For the ambitious, large glasses of cooling ayran make the perfect partner to the rather huge sandwich. The blend of yogurt, water, and salt, is a refreshing, but perhaps acquired, taste. Its place on the menu attests to the fact that although this Turkish delight is next to a mega mall, the food isn't dumbed-down to American expectations.
