|Forget subs and po-boys, and try the Adana Sandwich at our No. 1 pick.|
A little piece of Turkey in the heart of Rice Village, this tiny restaurant has plenty of Turkish pizzas and sandwiches going for less than $10. Try the imam bayildi ($4.49), a marinated, roasted and stuffed eggplant dish that is not to be missed; the classic döner sandwich ($6.99), a boldly spiced gyro with lamb and beef so tender it practically melts in your mouth; or the brick-oven pizza-like lahmacun ($4.49, or $9.99 for two with a side of charred eggplant dip), topped with minced lamb, tomatoes, peppers and fresh herbs The kabobs are just over $10, but for a few extra bucks they are well worth a try.
