In Argentinean slang, words are sometimes inverted. Therefore, a girl (mina) is “nami “, a bore (plomo) is “moplo” and a Turk (turco) is “cotur”. Argentinians, may God forgive them, tend to call Turks both Turkish people as well as Arabs and...Armenians.
The unusual spelling “Qotur” may reflect exactly what this restaurant is about: Middle Eastern food with flexibility.
Among the dishes tried, the best and more authentic included the tabbouleh, the shawarma (beef) and the falafel. Then on a second level came the mashed red peppers with walnuts, and far behind, a rice pilav with an Italianate tomato sauce, and Armenian mante (those fantastic miniature dumplings filled with meat) that were served as a soup, floating in broth, the pasta overcooked and the yoghurt sauce quite bland. Deserts include baklava and mamoules, none of them particularly great.
Attention is polite and prices very reasonable (cash only at the time of writ g this). You can buy half servings of many plates in the menu, and they sell take away as well.
Overall, I would say it far from the best Middle Eastern food BA has to offer, but in a trendy area packed with parrillas and the occasional sushi, Qotur comes as a breath of fresh air.
