Turco by Hell's Kitchen for Cheap and Delicious Mediterranean Fare

If you find your self stranded near Port Authority needing to grab a bite and wanting to avoid the usual overpriced Times Square tourist spots, give Turco Mediterranean Grill a try.  It's only a few blocks away from the terminal on 43rd and 9th.  

Though it's basically a quick service spot with zero ambiance with food served on paper plates, what they serve will hit the spot if you want to get your Mediterranean food fix on.  

On a trip a little earlier this year while waiting for an off-Broadway show, my fiancee and I were able to try the cold mezze appetizer. The different salads, including the shepherd, chickpea, tzatziki, and hummus, were all delicious.  Though it's basically a fast food spot, the food really tasted homemade and fresh.

Their homemade bread is served warm and is just awesome!

Their gyro platter is also pretty good.  The accompanying rice and salad were also delicious.  While their hot sauce is a bit on the milder side compared to some other Halal spots I've had, it's still pretty tasty.
