The food is delicious enough to make casual Hemsin a popular local stop. The cheapest options are pita sandwiches and Turkish-style pizzas (the lahmacun is topped with lamb). A generous list of well-executed appetizers includes familiar dips such as baba ghanoush and hummus, and more exotic ones, like acili ezme, a spicy mix of tomatoes, onions, parsley and walnuts. Succulent lamb or beef kebabs are served with vegetables and rice. If you’re craving something sweet, try the kadayif, a honey-walnut cake topped with crunchy spikes of shredded phyllo.
