Sofra. Ana Sortun's new cafe/takeout place in Watertown. Go there. Now. IMMEDIATELY.

Why are you still reading this, did i not tell you to go eat at Sofra this instant? Turkish and North African mezze and pastries, all wrapped up in a fabulous green-enameled vintage building that I loved even before Ana filled it with tastiness.

Feta whipped with spicy pepper. Celery root turned into silky hummus with almonds and a whisper of garlic. Lentil and walnut mash drizzled with tangy pomegranate molasses. This is the stuff of a vegetable lover's dream. It all makes for a gourmet dieter's haven, assuming you can resist the exquisite-looking golden pastries and the smell of cheese borek. Damn.

You are so right! I love this place and cry when I think about how it opened steps away from my apartment AFTER I moved away. We were just there yesterday, and I cannot get enough. The pastries could not be any better. We just got a box of them for lunch. Mmmm! The poached egg in curry is amazing as well. Even the pedestrian items have little twists to them to make them amazing. Did you know that her husband is a farmer, and a lot of her produce comes from the farm. They even sell produce in the growing season. Amazing find, and watertown (or cambridge?) is lucky to have it. Go to Sofra now!
