Anatolia Express – Vancouver, BC
Unit 40 1055 Canada Place
The eggplant salad, for example, lacks the lovely smokiness of its fire broiled sibling in Burnaby. The portion sizes are also slightly miniaturized for area’s the take-out market
This location is run by the friendly owners – former New Yorkers Hakki and wife Jannan who ran a Turkish restaurant in Albany for ten years prior to moving here to open Anatolia’s Gate. Interestingly, Hakki found his passion for cooking late in life having spent much of his early adulthood as an Applied Mathematician.
Anatolia’s Express is tiny (two 2-tops and two 4-tops) since it is primarily a takeout joint. And it’s cheap. As a bonus – I can now recommend a place that has both good food and a good view.
