Gozleme fans rejoice; Turkish treats anytime
Gozleme lovers no longer have to wait for the nearest food festival to grab a bit of their favourite Turkish treat; located on Little Collins Street in Melbourne's CBD, Göz City is the first specialty gözleme cafe in Australia and is open for business.

It's a much welcome addition to the business end of the city.
Göz City is unlike any other Turkish food experience, combining the age-old gözleme tradition with a distinctly modern aesthetic and attitude.
Headed up by Taylan Aksoy is well accustomed to Melbourne's energetic and ever-changing food and beverage industry. Part of the crew behind South Melbourne Market's popular Turkish restaurant Köy, Taylan knows good Turkish food.
Göz City's menu is led by four customary gözleme, which feature permanently - cheese and spinach, Turkish spiced minced meat, herbed chicken and mushroom and vegetable. In addition, weekly unique and seasonal flavour combinations are added. Think pulled pork and fig, shredded chicken and mushroom or even a Moroccan lamb with mint yoghurt göz.
Göz City offers quality coffee using Toby's Estate Coffee Roasters and a great selection of Turkish, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern inspired salads such as Cypriot Cauliflower or Quinoa Tabouli.
