You may have eaten Turkey's famous gozleme flatbreads at markets. Now a stand-alone gozleme store has opened in the CBD. "I'm confident in saying that it's the first," says owner Taylan Aksoy, who opened the small shop at the William Street end of Little Collins Street in late January after spotting a gap in the city market.
With his father Alan, Aksoy also owns Koy in South Melbourne where, on their busiest days, they sell more than 300 gozleme. At Goz City, the savoury flatbreads' yufka pastry is rolled and filled in the front window before being cooked to order. It's mostly about takeaway - with just 14 chairs, queues are already starting to form at noon. Best to get in early or Aksoy will have to start thinking about a second store.
