Street fare allows people to grab quick bites on the sidewalk without interrupting their commutes or wresting seeds from squirrels’ notoriously iron-tight grips. Avoid being outmuscled by small mammals with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Turkish street fare at Cafe Taxim in Palo Alto.

Cafe Taxim's Turkish street fare menu transports visitors to the streets of Istanbul with gyros, wraps, and kebabs. To forge the lamb and beef gyro, meat maestros marinate lamb and beef before slicing it as thin as the air atop a mountain of diet books ($10.95). A fusion of ground chickpeas, fava beans, and vegetables form falafel ($6.95), which mingles with eggplant, tahini, and feta inside a deluxe wrap. The veggie wrap’s hearty wealth of grilled zucchini, yellow squash, bell pepper, and eggplant ($5.95) prevent vegetarians from scaling trees to munch on leafy greens, and two pieces of baklava ($3.50) sweeten palates with layers of baked filo dough, walnuts, and Cafe Taxim's house syrup. As guests’ mouths journey through the tastes of Turkey, sunlight bathes the eatery’s sleek hardwood floors, burnt-orange walls, and geometric light fixtures.

Cafe Taxim

In Istanbul’s Taxim Square, the aroma of roasting lamb and beef wafts from street vendors’ stalls. Café Taxim’s menu of gyros and kebabs pays homage to the metropolis’ bustling street cuisine scene, though from within more serene environs: geometric light fixtures illuminate the casual eatery’s sleek hardwood floors, and vibrant orange walls rescue eyes from the strain of tracking doner kebabs’ RPM.
