Many years ago I was introduced to the wonder of the Turkish Gözleme. A Gözleme is a savoury traditional Turkish hand made and hand rolled pastry. Fresh pastry is rolled out, filled and sealed, then cooked over a griddle. The name derives from the Turkish word göz meaning eye. One of my favourite places in Perth for Gozleme is at Harbor Town. Random I know, but there’s a little stand in amongst all the shops called Nenem’s and they do a tremendous Gözleme. So one Sunday GG and I headed there, in part to see whether I could track down some wedding shoes, but more importantly to enjoy one of these tasty treats. When we arrived that day in the early afternoon and the majority of tables in front of Nemem’s were already taken. We placed our order and thankfully before our food arrived, we’d managed to find a spare table.
On this visit we mixed it up a bit and went for one chicken and one beef Gözleme. Usually we were beef all the way, but we figured it would be nice to try a different one. Both were red hot when we received our order. Fresh from the hot plate. The first order of business was squeezing on the lemon. Adds a nice refreshing zest to them.
I ate more of the beef and it was seriously delicious. The combination of the beef with the salty cheese and then the spinach.
Don’t get me wrong though because the chicken was also very, very tasty!
At around $10 a pop I think it is definite value, as we were both pretty darn full when we finished.
So this is only a short blog, but I’m a big Gözleme fan and if you are too then I’d say that this Harbor Town store is a worth a visit :)
