I discovered El Turco one night I was supposed to meet some friends in a Mexican restaurant but entered this Turkish buffet place by mistake.
Located on the Place de Londres in Ixelles, it’s a nice restaurant for a no frills meal with friends. When you enter from Place the Londres you have to cross the whole place to reach the extensive buffet of cold and warm dishes. You’ll find plenty of salads and vegetables, desserts and warm meat and vegetables. I never miss the aubergines and the pumpkin (in season), they are just so delicious.
Next step is to decide the formula you prefer: by weight (€ 2.45/100g) or all you can eat (€ 22.90) depending on how hungry you are. Just be careful: if you are part of a group, the whole table has to choose the same formula.
After you sit down, a waiter will come to take the drinks order: softs, beer or wine.
I normally finish the meal with a mint tea or two, comfortably chatting with my friends till it’s closing time.
