There are some food experiences that are amazing because of their uniqueness or their outstanding quality and then there are other food experiences that are amazing because they satisfy something deeply necessary at a particular moment in time. My experience with Enfes Gözleme was the latter.
Being multiple drinks deep at the end of a long night at Gluttony I was craving something with carbs, fat and something to make me feel like I wasn’t the complete trashbag of a human I know myself to be; spinach and cheese gözleme was the answer.
The flatbread and cheese blend satisfied the late-night need of the garbage person to punish themselves and then the spinach pops up to say, “you know what bud? You’re trying your best out here in this crazy world”. Lifting the whole dish up to another level were slices of fresh lemon and a generous serve of hot sauce.
I would like to add that none of this is to say that the food being served up by Enfes Gözleme isn’t great in its own right because it absolutely is, all I want to convey is that the manner in which I encountered it lifted the experience from greatness to excellence.
Cheese and spinach gözleme for me covers perfectly the internal struggle to take care of one’s self and also to practice self-care in the occasional indulgence of delicious-but-not-strictly-healthy food.
Enjoy this any time throughout your evening but in my experience it is best enjoyed towards the end of the night.
