● ● ● The Gundis restaurant in Chicago celebrates Kurdish cuisine and features some common Turkish foods and flavors like yogurt, sumac and saffron. One authentic dish is the Îsot pepper-rubbed salmon and chicken and vegetable sac tawa, a traditional, spicy Kurdish stir-fry cooked with onion, tomatoes and bell peppers, and served with a side of bulgur or rice. For a twist on a traditional Turkish rice pudding, Executive Chef Juan González adds goat milk for extra tang and serves up Kurdish "coffee," a naturally de- caffeinated brew of pistachio tree seeds (terebinth) and milk. The brunch menu showcases fig and walnut-infused pancakes, sou- jouk (beef sausage) omelets and spreads with fresh feta cheese, cucumbers and fresh cheese rolls with Kurdish sesame butter.
