Other than the Turkish dessert called baklava, I've never had a true Turkish dining experience. Sultan's Baklava introduced me to a whole new menu of food selections. They were originally located in El Cajon county but not has relocated to central Downtown. I had no clue of what I wanted to try; there were too many options for me. I had their falafel which looked like donut holes made out of chick peas. They were pretty tasty with their yogurt dip. I then had their chicken kebab which was seasoned and grilled quite well; the meat wasn't dry. I then had one of their beef kebab plate that had a a pastry rolled over it (something I saw off their youtube video on their site); that was probably my favorite. It tasted like pasta almost with the pastry wrapped around it and the tomato base sauce. And of course I had to try their baklava; it's in their name. They had a lot of different kinds to choose from and most of them were made with pistachios. I ordered a lot and they were all deliciously sweet (but not too sweet like prepackage ones from Costco) ;) Our neighbors at the next table gave us a slice of a type of dessert pastry called 'Kunefe' made with shredded fillo dough that resembles to be threads of caramelized nest with a cheese filling inside; this was really yummy but we were told that it has to be pre-ordered in advance before dining and usually feeds 6.
