Those expecting flaky baklava or succulent slices of döner will be disappointed when they walk into A Taste of Turkey. This initial dismay will quickly morph into wonder, since this South Street store specializes in breath-taking pieces of Turkish ceramic ware. Everything you see is handmade and hand-painted by artists from the land on the Bosphorus. Expect modern interpretations of the naturalistic–read floral—motifs that became more frequent during the 16th and 17th centuries.
