I'm not a big restaurant goer but I imagine any Turkish restaurant would
- or Greek. There's a Greek restaurant/bar on the market but that's a
slightly different taste. I think they use Bravo coffee.
Easier to make your own.
Most middle eastern stores carry several varieties of ground coffee and
it isn't very expensive (6 or 7 dollars/pound).
I haven't been to it for a while (we have a little place near us that
carries 'my' kind) but the Mid-East Food Centre at Belfast & St. Laurent
had a broad selection the last time I was there.
I liked Bravo (Greek) until I tried Najaar (Lebanese) (spelling? don't
have bag handy) with and without cardamon.
Krinos (Greek) is often recommended but I can't stand it.
The stores will also have the little pots you should have to make it.
Warning: If you are in a Greek restaurant do NOT ask for Turkish
coffee :-) The response these days will be good humoured but the chef
might come out and stare at you for a while.
