Berala Kebab House cafe owner Nevzat (Nev) Aslan and his popular eatery.
FOR the perfect pick me up and energiser, at any time of the day, head to the Berala Kebab House for a nourishing cup of homemade lentil, lamb or chicken soup and a free slice of Turkish bread and tea.
Open early for breakfast from 6.30am, seven days a week, cafe owner Nevzat (Nev) Aslan says his soup is popular in summer as well as winter since it cools you down or warms you up and keeps you going.
Also popular for early starters is Nev's hearty breakfast, including Turkish salami, egg, olives, pepper cheese, cucumber and tomato, all served with free Turkish bread and Turkish tea.
"People are loving it," he said.
"It is a good way to start the day.
"For lunch, we also make a good homemade gozleme with a choice of cheese and spinach; mince, spinach and cheese; chicken, mushroom and cheese; or we'll make it according to your own choice combination."
Nev says his range of delicious freshly-made dips including hummus, baba ganoush, beetroot, garlic, rice pudding, chilli yogurt and Tzatziki, are highly sought too.
Also on the menu are plenty of succulent charcoal chicken dishes, donna and chicken kebabs, delicious grilled chicken burgers, pizzas with free garlic bread, fish and chips, a full range of Turkish pides and beautiful homemade baklava.
"Business has been booming so that's been really good," he said.
"We've only been here for just over 12 months, after running Ali Baba's and Gozde Cafe Restaurant in Auburn, yet have received so much support."
Open to dine-in or takeaway until 10pm daily, Nev says they're also happy to discuss options for catering at special events and functions and offer a 10 per cent discount to nursing homes for group orders.
