Opened late last year, Bodrum Kitchen is a bright blue and white sun-trap, situated within the still-new and shiny Brickworks development at New Lynn mall. It’s run by the Isik family, with Feriza and Nigar driving the menu of Turkish/Greek cuisine.
The protective, Turkish evil eye was a key inspiration for the interior’s design and proliferates, from an installation of 150 hanging glass ornaments above the central bar to lapel pins worn by staff. With furniture imported directly from Bodrum, coffee roasted on site and handmade Turkish Delight, made in front of customers by Greek chef Nada, Alex Isik’s attention to detail is impressive.
Bodrum Kitchen’s Estrella Damm Tapas Trail menu:
- Panko crumbed goat’s cheese balls, runny honey and pistachio
- Fried calamari with spring onion, parsley and garlic, chilli pickle dipping sauce
- Lamb, pine nut and herb phyllo cigara with sherry and raisin dipping sauce.
Enjoy all these dishes plus two glasses of Estrella Damm for $40.
