Istanbul Grill is a Turkish restaurant in Fountain Valley. People not familiar with the cuisine will be vaguely familiar with some of the offerings—kebabs, hummus and the basket of pita placed on each table. But Istanbul Grill outdoes itself by offering rarities—an amazing olive oil-and-roasted-tomato dip as a starter, spicy and filling; long, fried sigara boreks stuffed with feta cheese that look just like flautas, and a gigantic bowl of sautéed lamb and veggies rightfully called a shepherd casserole. And, of course, there is the iskender kabob: toasted pita strips and slices of doner kebab slathered in tomato sauce and butter, with a scoop of yogurt on the side to make it even more unctuously wonderful.
